Barcode scan app amassed millions of downloads before weird update starting popping open webpages...


Re: But which app is the bad one?

I had ZXing installed, and started getting full screen ads when I unlocked my phone last December. After a few days of checking, found other people suspicious of ZXing, so I uninstalled, and the ads went away. So I'm one of the people leaving bad reviews, and I meant to do it on ZXing.

No idea how it happened when it hasn't updated in years though.
