Google removed all the 7 apps after Avast reported the apps to the company, but it is very insane that these apps even made it to the Play Store in the first place.
Cybersecurity firms Avast discovered that seven apps on the Play Store - Track Employees Check Work Phone Online Spy Free, Spy Kids Tracker, Phone Cell Tracker, Mobile Tracking, Spy Tracker, SMS Tracker, Employee Work Spy - were not only enabling users to stalk targeted Android phones, but the apps were also collecting sensitive data like call history and text messages. The apps were most likely designed by a Russian developer and spied on their targets.

The apps require you to have access to the phone of the person you are trying to spy on and once installed, it's pretty hard to tell that these apps are actually installed as there is no app icon.
