There are millions of apps on the Google Play Store. Some apps are free, and some have to be paid for. In such a situation, most Android smartphone users install and run apps from here. But many times, these Android apps create problems for the users due to which their personal information gets leaked. In case of a data leak, app developers fix it many times, but using such apps continuously can prove very dangerous for you.

14 Apps on Google Play Store Leaking Users Data

According to a report by CyberNews, 14 Android apps on the Google Play Store of Firebase Configuration are leaking users’ data. These apps are leaking the private information of users online. Google owns the Firebase platform. This directly benefits the developers so that they can make changes within the apps. The report has said that these apps are pretty famous and downloaded more than 140 million times.

Researchers have revealed here 1100 most popular apps, which are present in 55 categories on Playstore. They were identified with the help of their default Firebase address. After finding the talk, researchers said that we checked the database permission configuration and then tried to access it using Google’s REST API.

The report further stated that these apps were not configured correctly on Firebase, due to which the data of users can be leaked. This data includes users’ accounts, email addresses, and the user’s real name. The report also states that anyone who knows the URL can access these databases. In the statement, it has also been said that Google has not given any reaction to this matter. In such a situation, if you have also downloaded such apps on your phone, then it is hazardous.

This means that if you have Universal TV Remote Control, which over 100 million users have installed, you should be aware that your data could be leaked, as CyberNews reports. Similarly, the Find My Kids: Child GPS Watch app and phone tracker has over 10 million downloads, but this too has been affected by misconfiguration, according to the report, which users should also know about Hybrid Warrior, Dungeon of the Overlord and Remote for Roku: Codematics are some of the apps that have the potential to cause this type of error.
