EXPERTS have warned millions of Android smartphone users about a batch of apps found to be riddled with viruses.
Worryingly, almost 10million devices are thought to have installed the dodgy apps that were on the Google Play Store, according to Dr Web.
The list of seemingly innocent apps includes everything from image editing tools to wallpaper changers.
There are even some virtual keyboards and system optimiser apps in the mix.
Once installed, they can flood your device with annoying ads and cause all sorts of havoc.
“They can display full-screen ads and block other apps’ windows, show various notifications, create shortcuts, and load websites,” researchers warned.
Some can go even further, subscribing victims to paid mobile services without them even knowing it.
