Google Play is an incredible place for developers who need to make their own applications to start, yet, not every one of them have the best goals: a few projects can gather the information from your telephone, share your own data, and even take cash from your financial balance.

This is why you should beware of the apps you install on your smartphone, below, I have listed 5 dangerous apps you should delete or not install on your smartphone. Don’t forget to share.

1. Optimizers

Clean Master and other optimizers were developed to take care of clearing your cache and deleting unnecessary programs. However, most modern smartphones have this function in their system already which makes these apps useless. They rather make the battery life of your smartphone shorter and will only slow it down and get ads as a “bonus.”

2. Antivirus programs from unknown developers

When hackers started hacking phones and stealing data, mobile antivirus applications started appearing but then, hackers had a great idea and created their own antivirus apps. These apps can steal user personal data and even completely block the phone.

3. Apps for increasing the size of your RAM

Android apps which claim they can increase the amount of RAM are nothing but optimizers. They can temporarily clear your smartphone cache which is already inbuilt in your smartphone when you go to settings. These apps can’t increase your RAM but can easily collect your data.

4. Lie detectors

Like seriously? People still use their internet data to download such apps to detect lies?

These apps are created just for fun but for now, lie detectors in phones are as useful as crystal balls. Just like similar apps, they shorten your smartphone battery life. Also, these apps don’t need access to your contacts and personal data. So, if an app like this is trying to get access, don’t install it.

5. Weather apps

Weather apps has been discovered to carry a lot of viruses. For example, there was an instance when a weather app had an in-built trojan that collected the data from the owner’s phone and sent it to the attackers. For the most part, they were interested in credit card data.
