GTA San Andreas is one of the most popular Grand Theft Auto games, and fans tend to replay it often. Rockstar Games released the blockbuster title for PlayStation 2 in 2004 and later ported it to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, Apple Macintosh, Apple iOS, and Android. Even though the game is officially available on these platforms, many gamers keep searching for free APK and OBB files.

However, there are many risks associated with this practice, and players fall victim to it without realizing it.

As mentioned earlier, the original GTA San Andreas game is available on mobile platforms. Rockstar Games released it on December 19, 2013, with updated game models, textures, and a higher resolution. Android users can go to the Google Play Store, search for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and download it directly from there.

The game has a size of 2.7 GB and has been downloaded more than five million times. However, it is not free, and players must pay a one-time fee of $6.99 to add it to their library. As a result, some tend to search for the APK and OBB files of the game which can be obtained for free.

While it is true that you can find many related APK download links with a simple Google search, you should be aware that the majority (if not all) of them are infected with malicious scripts and malware. Many gamers have reported suspicious activity on their smartphones after downloading these files. Many had to give up their devices completely because it was completely corrupted by hackers.

Third-party websites allow you to download and enjoy GTA San Andreas for free, but hacking a copyrighted game is difficult, so these developers want to make profits one way or another. Therefore, the majority of them install malware deep within the game files and then profit by selling user data.

It should be noted that only the 2003 version of the game is available for mobile devices. Rockstar Games has not released GTA San Andreas Definitive Edition for Android and iOS, so any website claiming to have it is completely fake.

Players who want to enjoy the popular GTA game on their smartphones are advised to download it only from the official sources and protect their privacy.
