Actually, malicious content has been found in 6 VPN (virtual private network) apps from the Play Store, due to which it has been removed from its platform by Google. These 6 dangerous VPN apps include Hotspot VPN, Free VPN Master, Secure VPN and CM Security AppLock Antivirus app.

All these apps have been developed in China. According to the report, all these apps included a large number of fraud ads. All these applications were downloaded 500 million times. Last week, mobile security firm Vandera Researchers has spotted adware in apps named Sun Pro Beauty and Funny Sweet Beauty Selfie Camera. According to the information, both these apps are quite popular on Google Play Store and these apps have been downloaded more than 1.5 million times.
