I think it’s probably fair to say that the majority of us relentless porn addicts have at some point watched the occasional, or frequent, blue movie on our phones. 

But unfortunately this article is the bearer of bad news, as it turns out that watching an adult film on your android could actually be pretty detrimental – potentially resulting in somebody stealing your hard earned dolla.

According to Mobile Choice, hundreds of porn apps on our mobile phones are bugged with ‘lock screen apps’ which may lock phone screens and leave users with no way to prevent malicious applications.

These worrying apps could then be used to steal data and money from your phone.

Security researcher, Alex Dubrovsky, of Dell, said:

We have found over a 100 different apps that contain this malware and suspect that the authors behind the apps are gearing up for a much larger more deadly assault.

This lock screen is spreading mainly via Porn related apps.

Sadly, the dark side of technology has only served to prove that this is certainly not the first time porn apps have wreaked havoc on users.

Last September, a porn app named Adult Player became infamous after reportedly taking pictures off those using the app from their mobiles front camera. The app then showed them the pictures and demanded them to pay £330 to avoid being arrested while also claiming to have sent a message to the FBI.

Another app named Porn Droid which came out at around the same time also gained notoriety for changing PIN numbers in android phones making them essentially unusable. The mobile owners were then shown a message claiming to have been sent from the FBI, informing them that they had accessed ‘prohibited pornography’ and needed to pay a $500 (£347) fine within three days.

I think it’s safe to say that we should all just keep our porn habits to our laptops and to reputable sites too…
