News from La Riley

According to reports, people have succeeded in copying the footage created for the VaxiCode application and getting approval to download these fake applications on Google Play. As soon as MSSSS was informed of the situation, action was taken by Google to remove the fake applications as soon as possible. It is important to note that this situation is not associated with an integrity or security issue with the official VaxiCode and VaxiCode Verif applications. These are secure and ensure the security of personal information. Copying this type of popular application is a growing problem.
