Quick Hit – Good Advice – How To Spot Fake Apps

Quick hit, but first a disclaimer: This advice doesn’t work all of the time. As with phishing, bad guys are getting very good at making bad apps / emails / sites look like good apps / emails / sites.

That being said, this article from Lifehacker is good. Read it and hopefully save yourself from some headaches.

One other quick note: You Apple fans who think there is never anything wrong with the Apple-verse? This story’s main example is about an app that showed up on the Apple store this week.

Both Google and Apple have issues. And that’s why this article is a useful reminder to everyone.

It’s been another bad week for fake and malware apps. Stay safe out there.
