Samsung galaxy store:https://apps.samsung.com/appquery/appDetail.as?appId=com.celzero.bravedns


The listing on Samsung galaxy store is not the same one as the rethinkdns app. It looks like a few things were changed but it's basically copied the description and put it on the store. 

There is NO way to alert Samsung about this unless you install the app in question. 

I hope someone from Samsung can review this. 

Edit:

Rethinkdns is the real app and they do not publish on samsung galaxy store.

Hey there and welcome to the Samsung UK Community Forum

As this is a customer to customer forum, unless the moderation team pick it up then Samsung won't see it.

Please go to the Samsung Members App, bottom right Support them go to feedback and let Samsung know through there. It will go to the Samsung Development Team to review and if they agree the app is dangerous, they'll take the appropriate action I'm sure.

Yes, definitely a clone. Should be removed as soon as possible

Cheers @yesterdays-yam !

 

The link you gave  for the Galaxy Store app is coming up with this on the web for me:

And when I clicked on the link on my Z Flip4:

Have I got the right one there? If not, can you post a screenshot of the offending app in the Galaxy Store?
