Android and iOS Apps Stealing Facebook Login Credentials

Meta Platforms has disclosed over 400 malicious mobile apps that are targeting users to steal their Facebook credentials. These apps, listed on both the Google Play and Apple App stores, were disguised as real apps, such as photo editors, VPN services, and games with fake reviews to trick users into downloading them.

The majority of these malicious apps were fake ad managers, followed by 42.6% being photo editors, 15.4% as business utilities, 14% phone utilities, 11.7% games, 11.7% VPN services and 4.4% lifestyle apps.

Credential theft allows malicious actors to gain access to Facebook accounts and subsequently lock users out by changing multi-factor authentication information and passwords. This is especially critical for users with access to business social media profiles on their mobile devices, as these actors could potentially hijack and post malicious or unwanted content on an organization’s Facebook profile.

A full list of the malicious apps can be found here:

Users are urged to check for these apps and to change passwords immediately if impacted. Furthermore, ensure multifactor authentication is enforced for all business social media accounts.
