Identify the contact address of the App
First of all you should check the contact address of any app developers. The email address of the developers of the fake apps is associated with Gmail or Yahoo. And if there are no contact information in an app, do not download them at all.

Check App description
Specifications associated with fake apps are often small and full of mistakes. While the description of an original app is written correctly in detail. This way you can differentiate between fake and original apps.

Note the ‘Verified by Play Protect’ badge
It is safe to download apps with ‘verified by play’ badge. Please check this badge before downloading any app.

Focus on data and battery use
If you have downloaded an app and you do not know whether this app is genune or fake, then you should pay attention to data and battery usage. Fake apps consume more data and battery.
