Fake Crypto Wallet App Imitating Trezor Found on Google Play Store

One malicious app imitated the hardware wallet Trezor — and the investigation found that the software had ties to another fake app that has the potential to scam unsuspecting users out of money.While the app’s page on Google Play looked legitimate, the researchers said the software itself contains no Trezor branding at all, with a generic login screen phishing for credentials.According to ESET, more than 1,000 users had downloaded one of the dodgy apps. Although it claimed to enable its customers to create wallets for storing their crypto, the software was actually designed to trick them into transferring coins to addresses owned by the attackers. Last year, Trezor issued a warning to users after fraudsters began to make counterfeit versions of its hardware wallets.
