    Malicious apps on both iOS and Android reportedly clocked 2.4 million downloads and over $500,000 in revenue. The apps bombarded users with intrusive ads and even hid their icons to prevent users from uninstalling them.

    Did I miss the names of the malicious apps in the article?

    Nope as they weren’t specifically mentioned.

    I don't think so! The only I saw was that the person who reported this was a Tik-Tok user.

    Perhaps mentioning the names of the apps would help....

    I finally found them listed on Avast. I took screen shots only.

    I also went into the App Store and the one I searched is still there available for purchase, so the others are probably still available too.

    I did a check from the Avast press release, the link is in the Ars Technica article, and none of the 4 iOS apps listed are available to download. Looks like Apple has promptly removed them.
