Magisk is a popular name around the Android users who love to root their smartphones. Also, the app is not available on the Google Play store. However, the app creator John Wu in the recently foun that on the Google Play store there is a clone of his Magisk. The clone looks exactly as same as the original Magisk app, also it has the same name. However, it was all cool, until the time it was reported that the app contains malware. Which simply means you should not download the Magisk application from the Google Play store.
According to Google Play store policy it is clearly stated that Google will never accept an app that helps in rooting. Hence it was not possible for the Magisk to enter in the atmosphere of Play store. However, the listed app has been downloaded and installed around 50k times before people found about it.
The app was listed by the Loringo, Inc., a company that uploads clones of KKGamer Pro, Pro ZArchiver, and Dolphin Emulator android apps on the Google Play Store. The company used the name of Magisk to spread malware to the Android users who love to root their devices. However to stop the company, the creator of the App had asked the users to report the app. Hence, as a result, the Android app is no more available on the Google Play Store.
However, for our safety as Android users, we should always verify an app before we hit the download button. However, according to Google policies, Magisk is not going to make its way to the Play store anytime soon. So make sure you are avoiding each and every clone of the application on Google Play store. Also if possible go ahead and report it, this way the other android users would not get attacked by scams and malware.
