In a recent statement, Google said it has removed 49 phishing applications that have turned out to cheat and defraud users from the Google Web Store.
MyCrypto security chief Harry Denley said that most of the apps in question are a copy of crypto wallets. In his post, published on April 14, Denley stated that popular cryptocurrency applications such as Ledger, Trezor and KeepKey, and users of software wallets Jaxx, MyEtherWallet, Metamask, Exodus, and Electrum were created and investors were deceived with these.
Many 5-star reviews are made to fake apps that are available on the Google store, making it easier to deceive inexperienced users. It is known that especially MetaMask application created many imitation applications in this way.
Although Google has removed 49 plugins from the store in total, it is a known fact that similar methods will never end. This reveals the fact that investors must take their own security.
