The UAE's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) is calling on residents to read the fine print on their smartphone apps to avoid hefty bills.

It's tweeted a video, reminding the public that not all of their apps may be free of charge, so it's best to double-check.

The TRA is also urging consumers to take protective measures such as setting PIN codes or fingerprint and facial recognition.
