Check Out the New Google Play Store Update

Credit ID 118943519

Android fans who enjoy downloading new apps and games via the Google Play Store should be happy to know that the Android parent has recently released a new update for this service.

However, some apps may need location even when the app is not in use. "Similarly, the number of downloads can only be a very rough guide; a successful scam app may be downloaded many times before it is found to be a scam".

Researchers at Israeli cyber security firm Check Point have blown the whistle on a dodgy software development kit (SDK) that rendered hundreds of popular Android apps a threat to their users. However, the company will not delete apps from user's devices.

Google is revamping the user privacy by limiting the location access by apps in Android Q. Earlier you could either enable or disable the access by an app.

As time has passed, we've seen Google slowly become more serious about a cohesive design language when it comes to Android, Chrome OS, and the Play Store.

Use only trustworthy AV, not this garbage that after scan makes you uninstall nearly all of your apps because its nonsense detection rules. "These updates will help us all provide a more unified and consistent look and feel for Google Play, allowing us to better showcase your apps and games and provide a higher quality user experience", concluded the blog for Android developers.

Cousins likens Warriors' season to a soap opera
Cousins, still finding his way following his return from a torn Achilles, just had his best game as a Warrior on Wednesday. DeMarcus Cousins has taken plenty of criticism for what some people perceive as his poor fit with the Warriors.

The report noted that only 23 Android apps were able to detect all the 100 percent malware samples.

Of the 250 apps tested, only 80 detected over 30% of the malware they encountered during individual tests, which were not particularly complicated (the researchers installed the antivirus and then automated the device to open a browser, download a malicious app and install it).

For that reason, he added, "consumers should adopt basic cautionary practices to beef up their mobile security hygiene, such as knowing who develops the apps they download, being generally aware of the privileges apps have by actually reading EULAs and running some form of mobile security software to confirm things are behaving appropriately". AV Comparatives says it found more apps this year doing this than it did during tests the organization conducted last year.

There can be risks in using whitelists.

Google has now removed the malicious apps from the Google Play app store but only after potentially millions of devices were infected. Location is also one of the most sensitive types of personal information for a user.
