We have all heard the famous phrase of “Fake News” (false news).

Source: it is important to know who developed the application, usually reliable companies have web versions that you can visit as well.
Feedback: Too many positive reviews without good arguments can be a bad sign (maybe it’s bots). Look for different opinions and better, if they are even answered by the creators of the app.
Time: how long ago was this app created? When were your last updates? If it is regularly maintained and updated, it is more reliable.
Downloads: if many users have downloaded the app, it means that it is popular, but it does not mean that it is not a fraud. Before downloading, take a look at the permissions it requests for its installation, in this way you protect your private information.
