Google has recently removed upto 87 fake Minecraft mods from the play store, after they were exposed by users. The fake mods and applications display out of app adverts (by using a Trojan agent – a type of Virus), but also have access to your personal data on the device. As if they was not bad enough, some mods are not mods at all, and the Download button just redirects you to different, often adult themed, websites.
If your not sure about a mod, or other Minecraft app, don’t download it. Remember to always stay safe online.
