Andriod Apps Scanned For Malware

by Categorized: Apps Date:

Google announced Thursday that it will be scanning apps on users Android devices to check for malware and other problems.

Mashable reports:

Previously, when the Verify Apps service was enabled, only apps from third-party app stores were scanned, and only upon installation. Now Verify Apps will check every app before it is installed — and will regularly check that all of a user’s installed apps are “behaving in a safe manner.”

Apple has scanned apps since starting it’s app store.
