The application has been downloaded millions of times and can pose a real threat to those who install it. This was recently investigated by CyberNews about the beauty application and found that some of them stole and sold data.

The Investigators revealed: “Basically, you do not expect this application to erode and sell your data, disturb you with nonstop, dangerous advertisements, direct you to phishing websites (Phishing is a method used by hackers to steal passwords by tricking targets using a fake login form on a fake site that resembles the original site), or even spying on you. But that’s exactly what some of the top beauty camera apps do. “

Most malicious applications come from China, with the same hacker group behind it. Some software used by hackers can be used to hijack your mobile camera. Some can even be used to control your device, or access your files unnoticed.

One application investigated could turn on the camera without asking permission. Other applications can send porn to users, bring it to phishing sites or collect their images.
