Attention : ces 450 applications sont à bannir de votre smartphone

Les applications se multiplient surtout depuis que le confinement a été instauré en 2020. Les internautes sont à la recherche d’activité pour passer le temps et pour communiquer avec leurs proches.

Toutefois, d’après une étude éditée par ExpressVPN, des trackers auraient été introduits dans 450 applications. Même si une partie a été supprimée, la plupart fonctionneraient en mettant en œuvre un système de localisation sans interruption.

450 applications remises en cause

Les applications ont connu un succès fulgurant depuis que le monde a subi de plein fouet la crise sanitaire causée par le Covid-19. Les utilisateurs passent de plus en plus de temps devant leur smartphone pour s’occuper ou pour trouver un moyen de communiquer avec le monde extérieur. Mais cela expose également à des dangers comme les escroqueries en tout genre : l’amour, les jeux, l’achat et bien d’autres. Des personnes malveillantes ne se privent pas de créer des applications contenant un tracker et elles utilisent un concept assez simple : copier. ExpressVPN s’est penché sur cette situation et a délivré un rapport qui pourrait vous faire penser à deux fois avant d’appuyer sur « télécharger » lorsqu’une application vous est suggérée.

Cette étude dévoile la présence de 450 applications qui suivent de nombreux mobinautes à la trace. De plus, ce ne sont pas des applications qui enregistrent une maigre popularité. Les chiffres le prouvent, certaines enregistrent jusqu’à plus de 1,7 milliard de téléchargements. Sur la totalité, 145 applications seulement sont en arrêt tandis que les 305 restantes continueraient toujours jusqu’ici leur activité.

Les services de téléchargement touchés

Pour attirer leur attention, les créateurs de ces applications ne passent pas 4 chemins. Ils se servent de contrefaçons pour induire les mobinautes en erreur. Cela est notamment très courant dans les services de messagerie, qui sont particulièrement entachés par ce scandale. On retrouve ainsi des noms presque similaires comme We Chat qui n’a rien avoir avec l’application officielle WeChat. Le même cas se produit pour Telegram qui est copié avec le nom Telegramy. Le nombre de téléchargements sur ce type de services a atteint la barre des 187 millions.

D’autres secteurs touchés

Les applications qui s’adressent aux musulmans ne sont pas épargnées. 10 applications en contiendraient alors qu’ils ont été téléchargés 67 millions de fois. Un courtier de données est aussi pointé du doigt. X-Mode qui travaille avec les États-Unis a été sommé de supprimer ses applications sur les stores des deux géants Apple et Google, car elles contiennent des trackers. Malgré tout, 10 % seulement des 44 % soulevées ont fait l’objet d’un nettoyage. Enfin, les applications dédiées à la rencontre doivent être traitées avec prudence. ExpressVPN dévoile 64 applications qui contiennent aussi un outil de localisation. Dans l’ignorance totale, les utilisateurs les ont téléchargées 52 millions de fois.
