Check
For now, users should occasionally check their mobile devices for old apps they no longer use and remove them, Yes. It is needed we all make sure we can continue check and uninstall unused apps.

Alert
The companies could, for example, alert users on a regular basis to applications that are no longer available on the app store, Alert would be a great idea, at least users would use them with their own risks.

Samsung
Moreover, the Samsung Keyboard application has a known vulnerability, the firm stated in the analysis. What Samsung should be doing is either upgrading or sending notifications to the users of that app and informing them that the app is not supported anymore.

Uninstall
mobile users have applications installed on their smartphones and tablets that are no longer in active development nor offered on major app stores. I tend to uninstall unused apps from my phone just because of this reason.

abandoned
Software libraries that are no longer being actively developed are a huge problem for programmers and a source of vulnerabilities, but are such "abandoned" codebases also an issue for users? I say they certainly security hole, we may not know wether we are using unsupported code or not.
