If you’ve got these banned-by-Google apps on your phone, delete them immediately.

Important news for Android device users, as Google have banned 12 apps from their Play Store, due to aggressive adware to be found throughout.

According to reports, the apps have already been downloaded millions of times between then all, so while they have been removed from the Google Play Store and cannot be downloaded again going forward, any users with these apps already on their phones should delete them immediately.

The aggressive adware means that users will essentially be bombarded with pop-ups all throughout usage, and can sometimes lead to users accidentally sharing private information, or can allow cyber scammers to generate large amounts of money from the device users.

Additionally, the apps themselves can feature software that makes them more difficult to locate on your device and therefore can be tricky to completely delete from your phones or apps.

The 12 newly-banned by Google apps are as follows, and the amount of downloads each app is reported to have already achieved:

• Super Skibydi Killer – 1,000,000

• Agent Shooter – 500,000

• Rubber Punch 3D – 500,000

• Eternal Maze (Yana Pospyelova) – 50,000

• Rainbow Stretch – 50,000

• Jungle Jewels (Vaibhav Wable) – 10,000

• Stellar Secrets (Pepperstocks) – 10,000

• Fire Fruits (Sandr Sevill) – 10,000

• Cowboy’s Frontier (Precipice Game Studios) – 10,000
