The viral face transformation app called FaceApp has been generating a lot of hype these past few days and people are questioning the app developer’s privacy policy. Now a new app is doing the rounds on the internet which tricks the users into believing that it is a certified version of FaceApp but it is really a malware infecting people’s devices.

As per a report by Forbes, cybersecurity company Kaspersky Labs has found out about an adware module called “MobiDash” is being used to mask the malware under the guise of a famous app to infect devices. “This means that the activities of the fake version of FaceApp could intensify, especially if we are talking about hundreds of targets in just a few day,” Igor Golovin, Security Researcher at Kaspersky, said in a statement, according to the report.

Although there’s no evidence yet to FaceApp mishandling or misusing user data, it’s still a healthy practice to take precautions before signing up to viral apps that ask for sensitive information.
