    Super Mario run has become the biggest hit game that has 40 million downloads worldwide in its first four days of release.

    The game has taken the world by storm since its launch on iOS devices over a week ago, but since the game has been released for iOS devices and not yet on Google Play, it has caused a lot of disappointment among android users.So eventually those who couldn't wait for the release of this game on google play store usually ended up in downloading this game outside google play store.

    But it is really unfortunate that those tonnes of phoney copycat unofficial super Mario apps on many third-party Android app stores turn out to be malware or viruses that attempt to look like the legitimate Super Mario Run app.

    And some of this malicious apps can take full control of your devices, as the apps request privileges to edit, read, receive and send text messages, take photos and record videos and track your location using GPS.

    And some of this malicious app usually created additional pop-up ads icon, banner and also install other malicious apps onto victims smartphone and perform other intrusive activity without any user interaction and it was according to Tokyo-based Trend Micro antivirus firm, which detected malicious Super Mario apps 90,000 times this year.

    While some of this app are perfectly legitimate, some are suspicious apps distributed by third part app stores including more malicious app that even request for administrator right.

    How To Prevent Yourself
    Instead of downloading that app outside google play store you're required to wait for the official update of the app so you will be able to get the app without worrying about malicious effect that the app might cause to your smartphone.

    You can also turn off your 'unknown source app' by going to your phone settings
