CyRC has analyzed 3,335 free and paid mobile apps on the Google Play Store. This report is based on AtlasVPN data.

how big is this problem

If we talk about this problem, then Google Play Store is a very big platform in itself and such bugs can affect more and more people. AtlasVPN stated that “Given that Google Play Store applications have been downloaded millions of times, it is safe to say that they pose a significant security risk to Android users.”
