Beware this porn app. You are being watched too!

While watching porn is mostly harmless if you're being discreet, it'll be even better if you're careful about where you are clicking.

A new app named 'Adult Player' has been playing havoc with porn watchers in the last few days. Basically marketed as a porn app, once users click on it, the app simply shows them their own pictures and charges them £330 to avoid being arrested.

Users could look at it like a joke and trash it away. However, the app basically locks the screen and displays the message, including IP address and a case number, while calling itself the FBI.

The worst part is that the software behind the app cannot be uninstalled, apart from the fact that users are virtually blackmailed to pay up to save themselves from being put behind bars. The only way to remove this installation is to boot your phone into safe mode and then removing the app's administrator privileges before uninstalling it.

The app is not available in Google Play store and users can download it using the software named ZScaler. To use apps that do not harm you, it's a lot better to rely on apps available in official app stores rather than downloading them through unknown software.
