"When we find that an app has violated our policies, we remove it from Google Play", a Google spokesperson told Wired. Also, Google had the same program running in its store and after that Apple revoked the certificate used by both Google and Facebook.

Android users should be pleased to find out that the latest update for the Google Play Store introduces a handful of software tweaks that improve its overall performances.

Finally, users must take precautions and try to avoid those kinds of spyware like Exodus, by not accessing the links, stay strictly to the app store like Google Play Store or Apple Store. Just ensure that you are downloading the correct system image for your device.

In the five largest Android markets, Google saw PHAs installed at a lower rate year-over-year in three of them (India, Indonesia, Brazil), while one market was flat (Russia) and one had an increase (U.S.).

The flawless example of just how important the Google Play Store is to the Android operating system is the fact that the Android parent is always releasing new updates for it. Google's developers are constantly releasing new updates for the Google Play Store and a brand-new one has arrived today.

If Sweden also makes an extradition request, it would be up to Britain's Home Secretary to determine which would take priority. Newly arrested WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange needs to "answer for what he has done", Hillary Clinton said on Thursday.

From now on, all of the Android smartphones running on Android 7.0 version can be used as the physical security key for the Two-step verification. In the US, the number of Android devices with a PHA installed rose 25% from 0.4% to 0.5%. Google Play Services is a managing app that handles all the installed Google applications on your Android smartphone. But this security feature uses a Bluetooth connection to facilitate a secure login, which also means that your Android device must be in close proximity with your PC.

A team of researchers from Lookout, a mobile security firm discovered that Exodus now has a version capable of putting iPhone users at risk.

With that being said, it should come as no surprise that the Android parent is updating Google Play Services on a regular basis.

For example, you can say to Assistant, "Okay Google, set my Pixel 3 to silent". The app was getting web data from user phones.
