While many app developers celebrate the spirit of IPL, some are again stealing your data. So make sure to be safe while installing too good to be true apps on your smartphones.
With the Indian Premier League season 5 underway, many application developers have announced apps for smartphone users. But while most applications remain legitimate and helpful for the users, some others are trying to exploit users and steal their confidential information right from their smartphones. These apps are loaded with permissions that if accepted render your precious data open for the apps and in turn for the developers to access.
One such application is “Watch IPL Live 2012” by a developer named Devroid Apps. The application claims to provide users with live streaming of matches as and when they are played but in return all it does is nothing because this is what this application is supposed to do.
