Google removes multiple apps for stealing users Facebook passwords
The apps had over 5.8 million downloads.
Google has removed multiple apps for stealing the Facebook passwords of users as nine apps have been taken down from the Play Store so far.
According to Ars Technica, the apps were removed after Dr. Web analysts discovered they were stealing Facebook login details. The apps had a combined 5.8 million downloads and included popular applications such as "Rubbish Cleaner" and "Horoscope Daily".
Facebook was the target in each case, but the creators could just have easily steered users toward other internet services.
Google also told Ars Technica that it banned all the app developers from the store.
