Now, once again they are trying to take advantage of this, so we recommend that you exercise extreme caution and that you do not install any file on your mobile, because a new wave of false APKs has been detected that only have the purpose of fraud.
The title of Epic Games has become the most popular game today and has millions of players. Although the study confirmed that Fortnite Battle Royale will not hit Android until next summer, the attackers are still trying to trick users into downloading and installing APKs that are supposed to allow them to test the title on Android phones before anyone else.
According to some people have reported through Twitter and other media, on YouTube have been straining again videos that promise access to the Fortnite beta for Android . According to the information of Android Police , in fact the attackers have bought an advertising space to the video platform so that the content appears highlighted and can deceive the maximum number of people possible.
