The Wandera report, warns, in-part:

“The apps identified by Wandera communicate with the same (command and control) server using a strong encryption cipher that the researchers have not yet cracked. Android apps communicating with the same server were gathering private information from the user’s device, such as the make and model of the device, the user’s country of residence and various configuration details.”
