HappyMod is an application for ROOT users that allows the modify applications to obtain benefits that are not authorized by the developers; Also known as a tool for downloading mods already applied. Due to the illegal implications of the aforementioned HappyMod, this app will never be available on Google Play. Despite everything, the official Android store constantly receives a multitude of applications masquerading as HappyMod.
The Google Play catalog is so huge that it would take several lifetimes to download all the apps; and several other lives to test all these applications thoroughly. However, if this catalog is analyzed, the number of members is considerably reduced since cleanliness does not prevail in excess. For example, just search for a popular game to discover dozens of apps that attempt to impersonate it. And the same thing happens with apps, especially those that can’t be officially found on Google Play. HappyMod is a good sample.
Don’t look for HappyMod on Google Play: it doesn’t and never will
HappyMod is a service that violates several points of the developer policy of Google Play. Essentially, is an application that illegally modifies other applications or provides applications that have already been modified. Unlock app purchases without paying for them, activate achievements without getting them or download modified apps without the consent of their developers, HappyMod is a risk to Android, its devices and its users.
We have already made it clear: do not search for HappyMod on Google Play because you will not find it. Or maybe you can’t find the real app because fake clones that you will locate with kicks. A simple search is enough to discover the HappyMod guides, tips and associated information, but still of no real use for those who have done the research. Of course, all the clones use the HappyMod icon, they usually include screenshots that don’t match what they’re actually offering
We usually keep track of all new apps released to the store (in AppBrain they have an updated count). Yes there is not a week in which several apps do not appear posing as HappyMod, all with the same mode of action: they imitate the icons, screenshots and descriptions of the original tools, always with the intention of fill announcements to the one who downloads the applications; with the risk of granting excessive permissions and even endangering the phone with malware.
We are surprised that Google is not more restrictive with this type of action (little by little it is redeemed), especially since the company itself specifies this bad practice in its Google Play policies (usurpation of identity):We do not support apps that mislead users by impersonating someone (for example, another developer, company, or entity) or another appSimply search for “HappyMod” on Google Play to discover how little this rule is respected. With the huge potential risk for Android users.
The original HappyMod is a delicate application that requires ROOT and most of the time it is useless when modifying other applications: most of them are protected against modification attacks
Our recommendation is that avoid as much as possible any relationship with HappyMod and its modifications: You not only risk downloading a bogus app, you can also get infected with malware. Whether you want to modify your apps with the original HappyMod or want to access the download of the changes already made.
