I wanted to let you know that the developers of ShareIT have now fixed all of the security vulnerabilities and from what we can see the app is now fully solid from a security perspective. If you would like to continue using ShareIT it is now safe.
Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

ALERT: Delete This Dangerous App With Over 1 Billion Downloads
Security researchers have exposed an extremely dangerous app currently available for download on the Google Play Store. This app is called SHAREit, and while it has racked up over 1 Billion installs, you need to be aware that it contains unpatched vulnerabilities that the app maker has failed to fix for more than three months.
These vulnerabilities can be exploited, allowing attackers to send malicious commands to the SHAREit app to hijack its legitimate features to run custom code, overwrite the app’s local files, or install third-party apps without the user’s knowledge. This means that if you are a user of SHAREit, your smartphone is wide open to being remotely hacked into.
Please check to see if you have an app called SHAREit installed on your device and if you do; I suggest that you remove it straight away.
Thanks, and please let me know if you need any assistance with anything.
All the best,
