Mobile operating system Android received a big security makeover Wednesday with the introduction of Google Play Protect. At Google I/O, Google’s annual developer conference, the company teased a major update to its security platform that consists of a mix of new features, a rebranding of existing ones and UI enhancements that will now live under one security umbrella called Google Play Protect.
New parts of Google Play Protect, according to Google, include the ability to manually scan previously downloaded apps in order to check if they are still safe. This combats the problem of Android apps that install as benign and later download malicious components.
