Application build test result
EDIT 2021-09-14 Crypto.com (co.mona.android) is featured on the official site. This is the official app.

With high certainty this is not a wallet but a custodial service.
Our verdict: not verifiable.
The provider has a family of three apps that we triple-checked to be linked from their website:
Do your own research
In addition to reading our analysis, it is important to do your own checks. Before transferring any bitcoin to your wallet, look up reviews for the wallet you want to use. They should be easy to find. If they aren't, that itself is a reason to be extra careful.
