CIMB Clicks is one of the most popular online banking service in Malaysia. It has official mobile apps for iOS and Android to allow customers to manage their bank account on-the-go.

Apparently, a fake CIMB Clicks app called “CIMB Clicks Perbankan Internet” (no link for obvious reason) get passed Google Play store security check and listed for free download.

Fake CIMB app

The fake app is listed on Google Play Store on June 11, 2013 and it has been installed over 500 times in 1 week. While the official CIMB Clicks app description is written in English. The fake app uses Malay language for its description. The developer’s website – http://tophotappstore.com/ – is not active. You can try to email the developer at tophotappstore@gmail.com.

Based on the app screenshot, the fake CIMB app asks for your CIMB online banking account’s User ID and Password, which is VERY DANGEROUS! The app could collect your login information to access your account. Already have users warned about the fake app in the app review.

I already notified CIMB and Google Malaysia about the fake app, and CIMB replied that they are already working on removing the fake app. Good job!

Like every Malaysian banks, CIMB uses one-time TAC (Transaction Authorisation Code) sent to mobile phone via SMS for additional security to protect customers against unauthorised access to bank account. Nevertheless, you never want to expose your online banking account username and password to strangers.

HERE is the only one official CIMB Clicks app for Android devices.
