Beware! Fake Fortnite APKs Having Malware Making Rounds on Internet


Fortnite is the talk of the town. The popularity of the video game has crossed all boundaries, and the game is attracting new players every day. However, Fortnite is not available on Android platform as of now.

Leveraging this fact, many bad actors are pushing malicious malware disguised as Fortnite APKs and iOS apps. Whenever someone searches for Fortnite on the internet, many dubious links appear in the search results which can lead you to download these fraudulent apps containing malware.

Such apps can impact the performance of your device and can also steal your personal data. According to a blog post by Malwarebytes Labs, “The more downloads that come from the website shown above, the more money the malware developers can make.”

Android version of Fortnite is bound to release sometime this summer as per official sources. Until the official version of the app is available on Google Play Store, malware developers will continue encashing the zeal for the game by targeting all those who are searching “How to download Fortnite for Android”?

It is advised that wait for the official release and not rush into the cobweb of malware out there.
