What to Do With Android Apps That Bombard You With Advertising

Some of the things that you might encounter with modern technology can definitely be a little bit scary all in all, but that’s only because of the fact that it could potentially harm you by taking private or personal information away from you. The fact of the matter is that not all types of malicious software is going to be quite so threatening, some of it would simply be annoying but this in and of itself might just be enough to make you want to throw your phone away.

Unfortunately, Android apps are some of the biggest culprits when it comes to this sort of thing. There are a number of Android apps out there that use adware, which is basically software that is going to make it so that your phone would become unusable and a big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that you would have to click away from so many ads that would be popping up some of which might just make it so that you can’t access any of your other apps at all.

In the past three months, 3 separate apps have been discovered by Kaspersky on the PlayStore that were guilty of using adware. All of these apps have been downloaded tens of millions of times, and one of them shows you ads even if the app itself is not open. It does this by using a delay between the time in which you downloaded the app and the arrival of the first ad. This is done in order to trick prevention measures that Google has ended up putting in place.

If you have accidentally downloaded one of these apps, or indeed any kind of app at all that has a tendency to show you too many ads using adware, then you might want to try and uninstall the app. You should also make sure that you check what permissions are being granted to an app when you are installing it, ensuring that no unnecessary permissions are given which might make the app a bit too difficult for you to use all in all.
