Cybersecurity experts are warning of an increase in fake apps that, when downloaded, steal your credit card information.
Criminals create these apps to look like legitimate retailer apps. However, these apps are anything but legit.
The best way to determine if an app is fake is to search the customer reviews.
If there aren’t a lot of reviews and it claims to be a major retailer, it’s probably fake.
– Another tell of a fake app is the app description itself. So often, criminals don’t have/use proper english. Watch out for bad english, typos, and the like.
