Bait and Steal
Malicious coronavirus-related mobile apps are on the rise. They might look like apps for collecting donations or offering special virus-related information, but these apps distribute malware and steal personal or financial data.
Be careful! Be informed
Before downloading any mobile application, do your due diligence. Research:
- The application developer
- Application reviews
- Number of download
- The publish date

And the corresponding page that requests credit card information to download and use the app.
