The recent cryptocurrency market surge has attracted a lot of attention. Not just because people are making good money, but also because criminals smell new opportunities to scam users. A new report by ESET confirms at least two fake cryptocurrency wallets were available for download on the Google Play Store. Both options are now removed, albeit they were available for far too long.
As more and more people rely on mobile devices for their everyday activities, the financial aspect is also shifting to smartphones and tablets. This also means the demand for mobile apps is on the rise, with users not always conducting the necessary research to vet applications. As long as the app in question has a lot of stars or decent user reviews, consumers will be more than eager to give the app the benefit of the doubt.
