ANDROID users have been warned not to fall for fake Samsung app available on Google Play Store.
The app in question looks like one of the tech giant’s specialty tools called DropShip.
It even has the same logo, but the app page description mysteriously lacks any mention of Samsung.
The real thing is designed to share things with other phones, tablets and PCs.
But the alleged dummy uncovered in the Google Play Store does none of the same, reports Android Police.
Experts say the app doesn’t even work when you try to load it.
It just comes: “This app needs an update!”
A red flag is the fact that the developer is called Assert Studio, not Samsung.
We don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes.
But according to the developer’s website, it’s an “ad-supported app”.

It looks like only a handful of people have downloaded it, but for now it’s still on the Google Play Store.
As the report notes, DropShip is said to be only available on the Samsung Galaxy Store.
It is also limited to the company’s home territory of South Korea at the moment.
The Sun has reached out to Samsung to confirm whether or not the app is fake.
Although Google reviews apps that go to its digital store, some manage to slip through the net.
