google

Google finally decided to refund the buyers of fake anti-virus, in order to maintain its reputation. The fake virus scanner was nothing more than an icon that changed shape when a user tapped it as reported by Android police. Now, Android Police has learned that Google is issuing refunds to purchasers, and giving them a $US5 Google Play Store credit. The developer of the app, Jesse Carter, defended himself to The Guardian by saying the app upload was a mistake. At the time, he’d promised to refund buyers, but El Reg notes that Google seems to have decided not to wait for Carter to issue refunds.

Google Kills ‘Hit No. 1 on Play Charts’ Fake Anti-Virus App


‘Google play’ an app store of Android checks for malicious app by default when uploaded whether that’s downloaded for free or takes some money. Google doesn’t confirm that it is functional or not and that gave a developer to make a fake app and earn money.
A fake anti-virus app named as “Virus Shield” was caught by Android Police and was bump off by google instantly. An app with no-functionality yet that app was no: 01 hit in app store. It did nothing like detecting and deleting viruses but just turning icon change when tapped that pretends that it’s checking for viruses.
Beside many claims of Virus Shield at least two of the claims made – low battery consumption and no ads – are true. But these claims are useless especially when you’re paying for it.
According to Appbrain, the software sailed past 10,000 downloads, putting its take at close to $US 40,000 for nothing at all. As Android Police says: “this is such a brazen and expensive fake that we felt the need to give it some special attention. It’s somewhat disheartening that an app so obviously fake could rise to the top, especially considering that it’s paid, and possibly hundreds or thousands of people have been defrauded already.”
Google play has to do something for such fake apps else people will may be defraud by many or who knows are defrauding now – a question which should be taken as seriously.
