More and more smartphones around the world run on the Android system. In such a situation, if a big mistake comes to the fore, then it affects the Android users of the world. One such issue has been pointed out by ZDNet, which states that there is an average of 39 security flaws and bugs in the Android apps used, which can be exploited by hackers to harm the users. These Android apps also include banking and payment apps, and these disturbances can cause a lot of harm to the users, including the loss of money.

Citing a report by CyRC, ZDNet said that more than 60 per cent of Android apps are flawed, and users have no idea how bad it can affect them. CyRC has analysed 3,335 free and paid mobile apps on the Google Play Store. This report is based on AtlasVPN data. This means that users who have installed these apps can have unforeseen consequences.

These Categories of Android Apps are the Most Affected.

However, this problem is not old, and according to the report, some of these errors were noticed even two years ago, and they are present till the first quarter of 2021. This means that the problem is still not fixed. The category of apps that have the most issues are the free ones. According to AtlasVPN data, more than 96 per cent have errors.

Apart from this, if we talk about gaming, then 94 per cent is wrong in this category. With this, the next category is banking and financial Android apps, in which 88 per cent of the apps are faulty and can cause significant harm to the users. At the same time, 36 per cent of the health and fitness category apps are also wrong.

Next comes the education category, and according to AtlasVPN data, “Educational apps had the most exploitable Android vulnerabilities in Q1 2021 – with potential improvements up to 43%.”

How Big is this Problem

If we talk about this problem, then Google Play Store is a massive platform in itself, and such bugs can affect more and more people. AtlasVPN stated that “Given that Google Play Store applications have been downloaded millions of times, it is safe to say that they pose a significant security risk to Android users.”
