One of the most important issues that the customers are facing nowadays is the security of their devices. Google is trying its best to save the customers from malicious applications. From time to time, it has introduced many new apps and also updated the old ones. Google is also upgrading the Android versions to enhance the security. Now, there is news that Google is going to release a new application. The name of this application is Google Play Protect. This application will let the users secure their devices from dangerous apps.
This application will scan the device to know the effects of different apps. It will inform the user about adverse impacts of an application. Google’s play store has already secure applications. It is another check applied by the company to increase the security. All the scanned applications will carry a card. This card will state whether Google Play Protect has verified the application or not. A user will then be able to leave those unverified applications.
Google Play Protect will bring the control of your device to your fingertips. It will also guide the user through using various applications. Google’s official page says about this feature “consider yourself covered”. It means all the Android users will enjoy this security feature free of cost. All the pre-existing services will remain as usual in this Google Play Protect. An Android user will be able to find the device. He can also erase, lock, or ring it permanently. It means that “Find My Device” feature will be available to users.
Safe Browsing is another very good feature added in this app. Google Chrome will warn the users when opening any suspicious website. This will also prove a lot helpful for the users. The warning message will discourage the user from opening such websites as are full of viruses.
Google had already announced that it had been trying its best to stop the spread of malicious apps on its mobile platform. But, the company planned to do it through its Artificial Intelligence (AI) feature. It wanted to use machine learning algorithms to trace the malicious applications. It will not only sort out the app but will enable the user to remove it from Play Store.
If Google succeeds in achieving this type of security for its Android Platform, it will give a tough competition to Apple.
