The tests were repeated 2,000 times for each app, with 2,000 of the most common Android malware strains detected previous year. As noted on the latest Android Developers Blog, new apps icons for the Google Play Store will feature rounded corners and straight sides at the top and bottom. Things are the same when it comes to app security; Google has taken the steps needed to make sure apps aren't misbehaving through Google Play Protect, which monitors the apps on your phone independently of the operating system.

Up to 150 million people using the SimBad adware for android on the Google Play Store facing a malware attack. With so many utterly hopeless Android anti-malware apps, AV-Comparatives recommends you stick to the well-known brands. Check Point also published a list containing the tainted apps showing package name, the app name and number of installations. It was found that only 23 apps detected 100 percent of the malware samples. The company installed the app, automated the phone to open a browser, download a malicious app and then install it. If the app is in the background and needs to get your attention quickly - such as for incoming calls or alarms - developers can use a high-priority notification and provide a full-screen intent.

Use only trustworthy AV, not this garbage that after scan makes you uninstall nearly all of your apps because its nonsense detection rules.
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. Instead of masking malware as an anti-virus product, the questionable products did actually have anti-malware functions but at a much less effective level than the best AV products.
