Finally, the time we’re all expecting has come: Fortnite for Android is available for download. At least, that’s what they want you to believe. A new malware is pretending to be the glorious success of Epic Games, do not be fooled! Do not download it!
Fortnite is, without doubt, a game that will go down in history. The title developed by Epic Games is breaking all records thanks to its large player base and its overwhelming profit figures, it is enough to think that thanks to Fortnite nearly 300 million dollars have been generated just last month.
The title has been accessible for iOS for a while, however, there is still no official discharge date for our admired smartphone. The wait is, to say the least, disconcerting for most of the players and some profiteers are trying to take advantage and take advantage of the situation with a fake version of Fortnite via APK.
According to the security company Malwarebytes, if you download this false version of Fortnite you will find a well-made and thought-out counterfeit. The icon comes from the iOS application, the Epic Games logo is used at the top and the loading screen is identical to the game version for Apple devices.
If you have fallen into the trap, once the false load is finished the application will ask you to perform a “device check”, taking you to a web page specially created for the occasion. This page suggests downloading and installing users a second “verification” application that is nothing more than a platform that uses reference systems. Downloading this application and finishing the enrollment process will help compensate the mischief makers of the false Fortnite and nothing more.
No matter how many times you try to “check the device” or re-download the Fortnite APK, the result will always be the same.
You must be extremely cautious with fakes Fortnite promos, and in case you don’t know where an APK file originates from, I generally prescribe that you abstain from installing it on your smartphone. Fortnite for Android isn’t yet available for download, don’t be tricked!
And you, have you fallen into the trap?
