Welcome to the ALAX weekly column where you will learn everything about the Gaming and Blockchain world, this week we will discuss about APK! If your impression with APK stops with it’s safety, then you must continue reading!
We very often hear about APK files but what is it? APK file is short for Android Package Kit, the file format used by the Android operating system for distribution and installation of mobile apps and middleware. APK files are analogous to other software packages such as APPX in Microsoft Windows or a Debian package in Debian-based operating systems.
Hence when you download an app from Google Play, you’re downloading and running an APK file in the background, but you have no access to the APK itself. One of the best things about the OS is the amount of control Android gives them. Unlike Apple, Android allows you to do and create so much more to your phone when it comes to installing applications.
The only problem is that there is an amount of risk in using APK files. Since they are not authorized by Google Play, you can end up with a harmful file on your phone or device. Therefore, it is very important to choose a safe APK site!
How can we ensure the app is safe for download?
STEP 1: Avoid third-party app stores
STEP 2: Look out for fake apps and scams
STEP 3: Check app permissions
STEP 4: Use a reputable virus scanner to check APK files
