According to Anonymous Alrawi.apk is reportedly being used by ISIS to send encrypted messages regarding planned attacks. This revelation comes just one month after GhostSec noticed that Islamic State was using a separate app called Amaq Agency. This app is designed for propaganda distribution and allows users to follow the most recent news and video clips.
