 Google has always been very vigilant when it comes to the safety and security of its users. In order to ensure that all the apps on the Google Play Store are safe for users, Google has a strict set of policies and guidelines that developers have to follow. According to the report, the vast majority of these applications were found to be infected with Joker malware.

Joker malware is a type of malicious software that allows attackers to secretly bill users for unwanted premium services. This type of malware has been a major problem for Android users in recent years, as it can be very difficult to detect and remove.
