I have received multiple questions on how to install apps from third party developers (UNTRUSTED SOURCES) outside the Google playstore but I want to warn that installing apps outside the playstore or Apple app store is a PRETTY BAD IDEA. I know that sometimes, big game developers such as EPIC GAMES refuse to sell their games via the playstore because they don’t want to pay the 30% commission that Google demands for selling games via the playstore. They want you to download directly from their websites for example the newly released FORTNITE games. They call it “sideloading”. A lot of people download games and apps outside the Google Playstore without considering the risks involved. Android is open source so they only warn you but won’t stop you from installing the games and this is why people think iPhone is more secure that Android. Apple forbids it’s users from installing free apps outside the app store and they make it extremely difficult to do so. They have good reasons and that’s why I want to show you the dangers of installing outside the playstore.
1. Google security scan:
3.Too many fake apps out there:
If you are really stubborn about it and wants to bypass Google Playstore and install such games maybe because it’s a free version, well make sure you update your Android OS to the latest version (OREO) first, it has more security features than older versions and honestly I wish you luck in your new adventure.
