What is Google Play Protect?

Google Play Protect regularly checks your apps and device for harmful behaviour. Google Play Protect will run safety checks on apps from the Google Play Store before you download them. It also checks your device for any harmful marlware from other sources and will notify you of all action taken against these threats to keep your device safe and secure. 


Please Note: This feature is only available for Android OS Version 8.0 (Oreo).
