Google is quick to replace the 2013 “Verify Apps” security feature with mandatory app scan for all apps. The flaw in Verify Apps is that it provides the user the ability to scan third-party apps using Google’s security engine after it has been installed on to the local device. Instead, Google is taking a more proactive approach with its Verify Apps security feature. It will now host a dual-layer security system. First, the Verify Apps will scan apps locally on Android devices to look for malicious activities such as SMS abuse. There will also be a server side scan on Google Play store to scan all apps in the Play Store.
