The experts found that the malware is dropped in as a fake Google Service application from the web hosting service GitHub as soon as Todo is installed. It sneakily starts by asking users to enable access permission. Once that permission is granted, it’ll add itself as a tool admin and won’t allow users to disable it.

If you’ve got the app installed but didn’t grant access permission to the malware, then it’s best to find a way to delete the app with none issues. In the event you did grant access, you could have to back up your files and factory-reset your phone to eliminate the app.
