  • Android may lose one of its advantages over iOS

    One of the advantages of the Android mobile OS is the ability to seamlessly install applications from any convenient source. But soon the situation may change - according to insiders, the new version of Advanced Protection will have a function to restrict access to programs published outside the Google Play store.

    Android may lose one of its advantages over iOS

    Mention of the upcoming innovation was found in the new beta version of the Advanced Protection Program for Google Play. The code comments they posted contain the phrases "for added security, Advanced Protection will not allow the use of apps downloaded outside the Google Play store" and " the app is blocked by Advanced Protection." Now third-party applications are already tested by Google Play Protect, which prevents the installation of suspicious programs.

    Although participation in the program is not necessary for developers, in the future they will be able to use the Google security program as DRM protection, publishing only part of the applications outside of Google Play. Given that this is a beta version, a few more months may pass before the application store policy changes, or this function will not be implemented at all. Google has not officially commented on the leak.
