151 Android Apps Need to Be Uninstalled Immediately

The cybersecurity software company Avast recently discovered a widespread premium SMS scam operating on the official Play Store. It’s known as the UltimaSMS campaign and consists of 151 fake apps which have been downloaded over 10.5 million times in more than 80 different countries.

Each app follows the same pattern: Once installed, the phone’s location, International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI), and phone number are checked to discover the area code and language to use. Prompts then ask the user for their phone number and sometimes their email address, too. This information is then used to subscribe the user to premium SMS services without them realizing. The charges are typically $40 or more a month and it can take weeks or months for a user to realize.

A collection of 151 scam apps have been discovered and removed from the Google Play Store, but Android users need to check they don’t have any of them installed (or did in the past).
