Fake Retail Apps Stream in for iOS Users Before Holidays
Hundreds of fake apps posing as retailers make their way to iOS devices right in time for the holidays.
The fraudulent apps have been posing as everything from chain retailers like Foot Locker all the way to high end brands including Jimmy Choo and Ferragamo.
There are serious risks associated with rogue apps including credit card fraud and other personal information entered upon purchase. With Black Friday and Cyber Monday just around the corner, users are becoming more susceptible to digital threats.
Apple has already removed several apps on a case by case basis but unfortunately for users, removals for apps aren’t made until the said threat is reported.
