Google Play Protect is now active on all Android devices- On the I / O developer conference in 2017,Play Protect a prominent theme, which in the context of Android O came up. The service is intended to protect Android against malware and third-party attacks of all kinds. For this purpose, PlayProtect monitors the running apps on the smartphone or tablet and analyzes all the applications stored in the Play Store – in order to warn users before the installation.
PlayProtect uses artificial intelligence
In contrast to the existing security mechanisms, PlayProtect runs continuously in the background so that developers can not implant malicious software through subsequent changes or updates – an approach that has recently gained popularity as the Play Store could hardly resist it. This changes with the launch of PlayProtect, which – like so many new features on Google – is based on artificial intelligence.
According to Google, PlayProtect daily scans one billion smartphones and 50 billion apps – huge amounts of data that Google servers have to deal with, because in order not to burden the users’ Android devices, the entire analysis is outsourced. This also includes apps that have not been installed through the Play Store.
Google Play Protect should be enabled for Android users
Play Play requires Google Play Services version 11, which have been in circulation since June and are now available to all Android devices. Under Settings → Security → Google Play Protect, the user can view the scanned apps on their own device and also deactivate the service. Apparently, the service is only with Android O its complete effect unfold – which means concretely, Google does not.
