I have been hearing about some android apps which give you free money or data by installing, using and sharing. Many of my friends have been asking me to install such apps so-that they get benefits of sharing app with trying to convince me like "share to others and get free benefits". Such apps also gives benefits if you install other apps or click on some links through them.
But I've been refusing to install or use such apps thinking following reasons:
- It should be nothing but pure advertising app for app maker
- It may get our personal information like email, phone, contacts and even some may get usage and information of other apps, files etc.
But/Now, I want to know more about such apps like how do they work? what are the major and possible disadvantages (malicious, spy etc.) of using such apps, etc. so that I can keep way from possible temptation/seduction and can preach my friends with better understanding.
