Sophos Labs researchers have found more than 30 iOS applications that you must delete immediately because they can charge a “very high” subscription fee without the user’s knowledge.
Subscription costs are ridiculously high.

If someone pays for them for a year without realizing it, that amount is equal to $ 360 or $ 468. The small fee for a mobile application is not that important.
Sophos Labs adds, 32 of these iOS applications offer a ridiculously high subscription fee. Most of the top 30 “bad” apps listed this time are free to download from the App Store, but the percentage of in-app subscriptions after the trial is over is too high for consumers. You have to pay a large amount without even knowing it.
The researchers explained how the program makes money from users using the same “trick”, whereby if you think one of these apps is free and install it, the app will show you. the message “free trial” (free trial) immediately launch the application.
This message reminds users that it gives them a free trial right. In some cases, most of the application’s useful features will only be activated when you subscribe. Some users may sign up for a subscription without reading details about the payment, including the actual cost of the subscription plan they use.
