No matter whatever trojan we’re talking about—we’ve written about banking trojan apps quite a bit already—it has the ability to do tremendous harm. Therefore, make sure to read user reviews and ratings before installing any apps. There’s always a risk you’ll install one, even though Google is quickly uninstalling any such apps that manage to get past its safeguards.
