That means you should Google them. If there is nothing about them on the internet, you shouldn’t download it.

Check the number of downloads

The number of downloads can also help you in making the decision if you should install a particular app or not. 
Original apps notwithstanding of their level of popularity will have been downloaded more than a million times. 
If the number is in hundreds, don’t bother yourself.

Read reviews

Sometimes, apps may not have a million downloads but it is original. To get more clarity on this, you should read the reviews of others who have downloaded and used the apps.

The higher the ratings and the number of people who rate the app, the better the chances that the app is original.
