You May Want to Delete These iPhone Apps — Or Risk Having Your Data Stolen

Following a recent security breach, Apple has removed over 300 apps from the iTunes store this week after discovering that the software was collecting users’ e-mail addresses and device serial numbers, MyFox Boston reports.

All of the apps were made in China and they allowed an advertising company, Youmi, to display ads in the app — but the company was also secretly collecting personal information/data. Although Apple removed all of these apps, they hope to restore them soon with a new developer. But just to be on the safe side, you should uninstall any of the below apps if they’re still on your phone.

Here is a partial list of the affected apps:
