After the major iOS release of fortnite earlier this year, fans have set hope for it's Android version to be landing soon.

However, this situation was fully looted by fake spammers and malware junkies who consider themselves 'game developers'.

In this week alone, there has been a major increase in the fake and spam titles like, "Download Fortnite-Battle Royale free for android!" specifically on YouTube.

Also be informed that, Epic Games has not yet released Fortnite on Android devices yet.(at the time of writing this post--21/06/18) 

However, reliable sources suggests the game to be releasing some time soon in this summer (2018).

Due, to high rise of these fake apps claiming to be the Original Fortnite, people are being confused badly as to what is real and what isn't.  

Most of these fake apps are being spread on YouTube and the ones downloading it are mostly kids having age somewhere between 8-13 (as most of the kids can't tell much difference between fake and original apps).

If you are a parent, please be advised to make your kids stay away from such websites/videos.

After you download these fake copies, the application asks you to download another application for causes of "Human verification".

It isn't clear as to the purpose of the secondry apps but it most likely shows adverts that makes there developer money (using illegitimate means).

At the bare worst, these apps can deliver potential viruses that can put your device and data at risk.

It is so advised to keep away from such apps and videos until official statements come from epic games.

And yeah, Stay Strong!
