Pocket Pair warns its players about the fake Palworld listings on Google Play Store and Apple App Store

With the attention that the charming monster-taming adventure game Palworld receives, several fake apps that masquerade themselves as the game have unfortunately appeared on both the App Store and Google Play. This has caused a great deal of trouble to the developers as this poses a serious threat to the data and security of the players.

To address this situation, Pocketpair Inc., the official developers of Palworld, has issued a stark warning to these imitators:

There is no official Palworld application for mobile devices. These imitators, shamelessly using the game's name and imagery, are nothing more than sophisticated scams designed to exploit unsuspecting players.

The dangers of these fake apps are real and far-reaching. Downloading them could expose your personal information, such as login credentials and financial data, to hackers. In the worst-case scenario, you might even fall victim to malware or phishing attacks, compromising your entire device.


To protect yourself from these fakes, here are some things you need to remember so that you will be safe digitally:
  • Stay vigilant: Remember, there is no official Palworld mobile app. Any app claiming to be Palworld on your phone is guaranteed to be a fake.
  • Verify before you download: Always check the developer information before installing any app. Look for Pocketpair Inc. as the official developer.
  • Beware of suspicious links: Don't click on links promising early access to Palworld Mobile. These are likely phishing attempts designed to steal your information.
  • Report suspicious activity: If you encounter a fake Palworld app, report it immediately to the respective app store.
Though Pocket Pair has already reported these fake apps to Apple and Google, it’s best to be cautious as the fight against online scams is still ongoing. Make sure to be well-informed so that you’re safe as well as the growing Palworld community. Remember, the Palworld adventure awaits you through PC not on mobile devices. Share this article now so that anyone who wants to delve into Palworld will not get scammed as well as have their security breach. Stay tuned for further developments in the issue!
