Of course, the company has measures in place that are supposed to stop fake versions of apps making their way to the store - or at least getting them removed quickly - but we've seen time and time again that these measures fail, thereby putting Android users at risk.

After acquiring a skin, a player would then choose a weapon category and then pick which specific gun they want the skin to be on.

New data has revealed that global tech giant Google could lose around Dollars 50 million this year due to Epic Games' decision to not release Fortnite on Google's Play Store.

When Epic Games brings its hugely popular battle royale game "Fortnite" to some Android smartphones and tablets later this month (it's now available on select Samsung devices only), it won't distribute it on Google Play. Videos such as the one shown above show how tantalisingly close you are to playing a great third-person shooter on your tiny device.

But this isn't going to stop people looking for Fortnite in the Play Store.

Epic Games has had incredible successes where the iOS platform is concerned with the globally popular Fortnite title. You'll be able to download it right out of the gate once you sign up, but you'll have to wait for Epic to grant you access in order to actually be able to play it on your device. From there, search for Fortnite and download the installer. These apps could take advantage of Fortnite's absence from the Play Store and try and scam users. Searchers are also advised that Fortnite rival PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is available to download.

Once you download the APK, the file must be moved to an Android smartphone for further installation. Users can add their name to Fortnite's wait list and will receive an email when a slot opens up for them.

Unfortunately, most users won't get past the sign-in process as only invited players will be able to launch the game.
