The government of Pakistan has recently started a new tree plantation drive, it is said to be the biggest tree plantation drive ever which PM Khan has inaugurated a day ago.
However, it has been reported by the sources that government employees are being forced to download and install an APK file of an app called “Green Selfie” App which is being distributed to government employees in WhatsApp groups.
The users are forced to download and install the app, take selfie of themselves with a newly planted tree and then upload the image on the app.
The Green Selfie App is not listed on the Google PlayStore, hence Google cannot check the legitimacy and security of the app and shows a warning message to users before installing the app. The app could rip the privacy and security of users apart, who knows?
It is important to mention here that, there are no details about the app, its owner and its policies and registration, the government is taking the privacy and security of users as a grain of salt, if it was UK or Europe, the whole government department could have been sued for doing this to their employees.
