However the google has removed the infected apps from play store,Users must regularly check their phone data for safety.Joker virus can steal all personal as well as bank account details like debit card and credit card. Don’t go for installation of every apps unless checking for safety.Antivirus like kaspersky,avast ,norton etc with paid license should be used to find out any infections present in the app.

And also set virus scan for once in a week.It must not be a quick scan.Always set for deep scan.I suggest run deep scan once in a week so that any infection can be detected earlier.If set for once in a month ,it may be easier for the app to steal and share your details.So don’t take risk .Live happier,Stay safe.
