To say that Apex Legends has proved popular is an understatement. But, as so often happens with a massive new phenomenon, cybercriminals are trying to take advantage of its success.This comes in the form of a malicious app disguised as a mobile version of the game.
Soon after its release Electronic Arts, announced it was considering expanding the game to mobile devices. Such a plan always seemed on the cards, especially as the other big Battle Royale games—Fortnite and PUBG—both have mobile versions.
While the company never gave a timeframe for when we might expect to see Apex Legends on Android/iOS, There have beennumerous apps popping up on different mobile platforms imitating the game but are in fact designed to scam you in some way or the other.
The fake app, called Apex Legends, is, in reality, an adware downloader, designed to generate revenue for those who created it. The program could be used to install something more malicious, such as malware.
The people behind the app are helping spread it via supposed Apex Legends tutorial videos on YouTube, which contain links leading to the fake mobile version.
THERE IS NO APEX LEGENDS GAME FOR ANY MOBILE PHONE SO ALWAYS REMIND YOUR KIDS AND KEEP AN EYE ON WHAT THEY ARE DOWNLOADING.
