Recently, a cyber security company, Sophos, discovered at least 21 dangerous Android applications that can drain a user’s wallet. All applications found are included in the “fleeceware” category. Fleeceware is not actually a type of malware or virus, but a nickname for an application that fools users with the lure of a short free trial period. After the free trial period ends, users will be charged a subscription fee. Users usually uninstall the application (uninstall) when they find out that the free trial period will end with the assumption that there will be no subscription fees.

However, different from ordinary applications, applications included in this fleeceware still charge a subscription fee even though the application has been removed from the device. Because the fleeceware application assumes that those who do not stop free trials manually, are still classified as users who subscribe to the application. As a result, users who do not stop the subscription service in the fleeceware application may be surprised when there are regular subscription fees charged. Rows of fleeceware applications found by Sophos are quite popular. In fact, all applications have been downloaded 600 million times.
