ACMarket, also called AppCake Store; It is a great alternative store of apps for Android and iOS that offers a great catalog of apps that you can download, in addition; offers MOD APKS that you will like.

WHAT’S GOOD WITH ACMARKET?

The good thing that can be highlighted about ACMarket is a lot, to begin with, by opening it has a very simple, beautiful and well-maintained interface; similar to the old Google Play, it will be easy for them to adapt…

It offers an initial line of apps where apps uploaded to the server are located recently. It has a category section with which they could guide you better. When previewing an application, acmarket.download will give you the option to choose the APK you want to download.

You have at hand the history of versions of the application, together with MOD inserted in case it is what you are looking for Best of all, what happens in many other “promising” stores does not happen.

ACMarket, the pirate application store that puts your mobile at risk

The claim is striking: pirated and modified applications to remove even in-app purchases. But be careful, ACMarket opens the door to all kinds of dangers for your smartphone.

Android application store there is one, at least official, but there are other alternatives that offer from apps to games. This does not imply that unofficial stores store applications outside the law, but there are some that stand out just for that. ACMarket is one of the best known, very popular among those looking for pirated and modified Apks.

 

The ACMarket alternative store is not difficult to find since it is an application downloadable from its own website. Just a search on Google to download the Apk and have the key to all kinds of pirate apps, but just install it and you see your intentions: take advantage of the user for your own benefit.

Suspicious permits and crypto-currency mining in the background

I already expected that the application would include advertising and that it would flood the user’s mobile with the ads. Also that the permissions would be suspicious for an app of your style: you can send emails to the contacts of our calendar, access the identity of the phone and the user’s data, also its location. Only, for this reason, anyone who intends to install it should already think about it, especially considering the somewhat obscure origin of the store.

I decided to try it to check my suspicions, so I went to their website and downloaded the Apk. After the first boot, I discovered that the appearance is very similar to that of the Google Play Store, so it is very easy to confuse them. What I did not expect was that ACMarket would not settle for abusing privacy and advertisements, it also mined crypto-currency in the background.

The malware is at ease by ACMarket applications

It is true that you can download the free payment applications and that the Apks are patched, but here is the risk: anyone can modify the applications and games to upload them to ACMarket, so there is no guarantee that they are clean of malware Rather the complete opposite.

The risk of becoming infected with malware from this app store is enormously high, especially when you are looking for apps and games that are popular. Excess advertising, abuse of permits, risks of identity theft, more crypto-currency mining. Common sense indicates that it is best to get away from it. I have checked it in person.

Having a store with everything for free attracts attention, but not only that: it also calls for the bad intentions of those who wish to take advantage of those who download the apps. My recommendation is to download only what has guarantees and do not look for modified Apks in stores like ACMarket. It is not worth the risk.
