– Epic Games skips Google Play Store
– Fake Fortnite downloads spreading malware
– Only download from the official Epic Games site

Epic Games have made the understandable decision to release the Android version of Fortnite through the web rather than through the Google Play Store. This has increased users potential vulnerability to malware and other malicious infections.

Why have they done this? Well, they probably didn’t want to pay the 30% Google demands for a product Google had no part in creating. So, yes, this is understandable, but it also brings with it security concerns that users should be aware of.

The main problem is fake sites purporting to offer genuine downloads of Fortnite for Android which then infect the device with malware. While most regular gamers have enough common sense to avoid these apps, the popularity of Fortnite has brought in new gamers that may not be as careful or knowledgable.

This is a good reminder to be careful, and if you are unsure about a download or link, ignore it and only download from the official Fortnite site: Official Download.

Be careful!
