Are you one of the 40 million people who use the Keyboard app called ai.type? If so please remove it straight away as it has been confirmed to contain Malware.
Installed more than 40 million times, 'ai.type' purports to be a customisable, intelligent on-screen keyboard developed by Israeli firm ai.type LTD.
However, researchers at mobile technology firm Upstream have revealed that the app has made millions of unauthorised purchases of premium digital content.
The app hides its unwanted activity so such is not visible onscreen, sometimes masking itself as legitimate popular apps like audio platform SoundCloud.
If you have this app on your phone please remove it straight away. Google have already removed it from the Play Store but as you know this will not remove it from your device. You have to manually remove it yourself.
If you have any questions or need any help please let me know.
