Harmful Android Apps (Uninstall Immediately)

Do Not Install These Popular Android Apps........


These days, there literally is an app for everything. Whether you want to spend hours playing games, watch a person on the other side of the world stream a local sports game, or organize every aspect of your life down to the minutiae.
The downside to this incredible level of choice is that some apps out there disguise themselves as your friend, when in fact they just want to harm you. Google’s Play Store has frequently received criticism for its less-than-robust approach to filtering unsafe content, and if you’re not careful, you could find yourself being tracked, hacked, or conned.

With that in mind, we take a look at seemingly-innocent popular apps you shouldn’t install under any circumstances:

ES File Explorer

What it is: Amazingly, it’s probably the most popular file explorer app out there. That’s because it used to be really, really good – five years ago

Why it’s bad: The free version has been pumped full of bloatware and ad-ware, and it endlessly nags you to download additional apps via non-disable-able notification bar pop-ups.


 UC Browser


What it is: The most popular Android web browser in China and India. It claims to have a “fast mode” that’ll save you MBs of data usage thanks to compression.

Why it’s bad: Tracking. Users’ search queries are sent without encryption to Yahoo India and Google, a user’s IMSI number, IMEI number, Android ID, and Wi-Fi MAC address are sent without encryption to Umeng (an Alibaba analytics tool), and users’ geolocation data (including longitude/latitude and street name) is transmitted without encryption to AMAP (an Alibaba mapping tool).



CLEAN it


What it is: A “junk file cleaner” that’s been installed 10 million times and has 85 percent four- or five-star reviews.

Why it’s bad: Most of what it advertises is detrimental to your phone. For example, clearing the cache will ultimately slow your phone down when it needs to be rebuilt, clearing your RAM only leads to more battery usage, and killing running apps does not save your battery as claimed.



DU Battery Saver & Fast Charge


What it is: Another “battery-saving” app with an insane number of downloads. It has 7.6 million five-star reviews. Well, sorry, but all of those 7.6 million people are wrong.

Why it’s bad: Fast Charge? An app does not have the ability to change how fast your device charges. This is also the king of adverts – it sponsors almost every ad that you see in any other app and manifests its own ads on your lock screen and notifications bar. Also, all those fancy speed graphs and cool animations? Totally fake.



Dolphin Web Browser


What it is: An ad-free, Flash-supporting, HTML 5 video-enabled browser. It’s got 150 million downloads and counting.

Why it’s bad: Like UC Browser, this is a tracking nightmare. Worst of all, it saves your incognito mode website visits in a file on your phone – go and check. Don’t believe the hype; delete it now.


Photo Collage


What it is: A collage creator that boasts 120 different frames, addable text, and fun backgrounds.

Why it’s bad: Lots and lots of ads, the most annoying of which is the DU Quick Charge ad on the lock screen.



Clean Master


What it is: Another insanely popular “speed booster, battery saver, and phone optimizer”. It has 600 million users and 26 million five-star reviews.

Why it’s bad: Firstly, it’s made by Cheetah Mobile. We referred to them earlier – the company is renowned for packing ads, bloatware, and nag screens into their apps. Secondly, it doesn’t do anything useful; RAM-saving apps were valuable once upon a time, but the Android system has developed so much that they are merely a hindrance. Android now has its own native handler for assigning RAM and ensuring it’s all being used in the most optimal way – in many cases, it even deliberately keeps RAM loaded to help performance.



Beauty Plus


What it is: BeautyPlus offers simple, yet powerful photo editing tools, artistic effects, augmented reality (AR) filters and so much more to take your selfie game to the next level.

Why it’s bad: This app has been pumped full of bloatware and ad-ware, and it endlessly nags you to download additional apps via pop-ups.


File Transfer Pro


What it is: The easiest, fastest way to send and receive files and folders from other smartphones, tablets, and computers. File Transfer works cross-platform on Mac, Windows, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android.


Why it’s bad: This app has been pumped full of bloatware and ad-ware, and it endlessly nags you to download additional apps via pop-ups.



Share it


What it is: SHAREit, the best sharing app with fastest cross-platform transfer speed & free online feeds including movies, videos, music, wallpapers, GIFs. SHAREit also added powerful media player, which helps you manage & enjoy your own videos and music.

Why it’s bad: This app has been pumped full of bloatware and ad-ware, and it endlessly nags you to download additional apps via pop-ups.



Xendor


Transfer files with flash speed
Imagine sending your party video to friends in seconds! The highest speed can reach 40Mb/s.

Why it’s bad: This app has been pumped full of bloatware and ad-ware, and it endlessly nags you to download additional apps via pop-ups.
