Prague-based antivirus company Avast is warning those frequenting the Google Play store that a number of improper apps are flooding the marketplace. Some aren’t really games at all, while others collect more information than they actually require.
According to Avast, Corner Kick World Cup 2014 simply displays a series of ads, while Fifa 2014 Free – World Cup, not to be confused with EA’s FIFA 14, collects information such as location and call log.
Not all World Cup related apps are to be feared. Governing body FIFA released an official app, which displays the tournament schedule, destination guides, team profiles, and match scores. If it’s entertainment you’re after, FIFA 14 allows players to create a fantasy team using players from the World Cup.
