Google just banned these 85 Android apps for adware, find out if you have them on your phone

by Ankit Chawla

In an interesting development, Google has removed as many as 85 Android apps from the Google Play Store after a report claimed that all of these were spreading adware on user devices.

Disguised as game, TV, and remote control apps, these apps had actually been downloaded about 9 million times since their release on the app store. They had, in one way or another, infected devices with adware behaviour thereby breaching the user's privacy.
