There’s no denying that Google is everywhere. And not just on the Web or on Android. It has its apps and services even on rival platforms like Windows, macOS, and iOS.

iOS app scammed users to authorize IAP with Touch ID

Google and Android have yet again come under fire for another batch of apps that either spread malware or practice fraud from under Google’s and users’ noses. Of course, many took the chance to point out Apple’s closed but effective review process that blocks such apps from even getting into the App Store. But it’s precisely because of that tight process that when misbehaving apps do get in, it’s an even bigger problem.
