What you should know about temporary free apps

When downloading apps that are offered for free, you should always check beforehand how serious the offer appears. TECHNOLOGY BUTTON tries to filter out dubious apps, but we cannot always guarantee the authenticity of the respective offers. Unfortunately, it happens more often that apps are specifically offered as free and have a strike price, even though they were never sold at this price. These apps then often offer in-app purchases to remove advertising, for example.

In addition, when installing, you should pay attention to which access authorizations the free app wants to obtain. If something sounds strange to you, you should uninstall it immediately. The apps often use these permissions to spy on you and display targeted advertising. Whether an app displays advertising can also be found in the description on the store page.
