Google has removed nine popular apps from the Play Store after researchers found that they were stealing Facebook passwords. 


The apps had over 5.8 million combined downloads. It’s worth noting that the apps were titled in a way that was easy for them to be found by users. 


The nine apps were: Rubbish Cleaner, Inwell Fitness, Horoscope Daily, App Lock Keep, Lockit Master, Horoscope Pi and App Lock Manager. 


The apps tricked users by loading a legitimate Facebook sign-in page, but then also loaded JavaScript to hijack credentials. They also stole cookies from the authorization session.
