Online app stores are filled with mobile applications for gaming, mobile banking, shopping, social media and other uses. With more than 40,000 new mobile applications released every month, rogue mobile applications are an increasingly attractive attack vector for cybercriminals to carry out online fraud and distribute malware.
To entice mobile users, rogue mobile apps may use your brand or imply your approval. This abuse not only tarnishes your brand, it also distracts customers from your official mobile apps and dilutes their value.

PhishLabs fights back against unauthorized mobile applications. We actively monitor more than 100 official and unofficial application repositories or stores, analyzing current mobile apps, updates and new mobile applications. When possible brand abuse is detected, we confirm the abuse, determine if the app is malicious, and review it for security risk.
When a rogue mobile application is confirmed, PhishLabs notifies your team and quickly takes action to shut it down and remove it from the application repositories where it is hosted.
