Google has changed the Play Store app icon

  • Play Store icon loses the bag in favor of modernity

The flaw was discovered by researchers from cyber security firm Check Point who say that 45 percent of Android users worldwide are affected.

As a result of this issue, the search engine giant made a small tweak to the updated Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, narrowing the security feature to only cover non-Play Store apps.

Google seems to add some more cards to the Android Auto app in coming weeks. The final, general-public release for the operating system is expected sometime in the third quarter of this year.

Also, another cosmetic change is the new notification icon for the Google Play Store, which is now similar to the new Google Play Store icon but has a tick icon inside it to indicate the application as installed. However, Amit said the Google Play Store uses "strong app analysis technology, which combines static and dynamic analysis". But in order to add even stricter measures to this screen overlay functionality, the next Android O OS will be dialed back thus reducing the phishing threat on Android devices. According to the findings, 74% of ransomware, 57% of adware, and 14% of banker malware abuse this permission as part of their operation.

The permission to access the user's private information or other sensitive resources, such as the contact list, is included in what Google refers to as "dangerous permissions".

The Google Play Store may just be another app on your Android phone but it is probably the most significant of them all. "However, this soon caused problems, as this permission is also used by legitimate apps, such as Facebook, which requires it for its Messenger chat heads feature", Check Point wrote in a blog post. So all someone has to do is say that the System Alert Window functionality is needed for their app and there you go, even though Google originally said this was risky.

We're covered many of Android O's upcoming features, and we've even seen some of them in early developer preview builds over the past few weeks. Since Android O will have at least a little more protection when it comes to the Android permissions issues, it is unclear if this will negatively impact those legit apps that need these permissions to run properly.

"Since Google understood the problematic nature of this permission, and the apparent risks for user privacy it created the distinct process mentioned above to approve it".
