“Verify Apps” is a service that is on a constant check for any malware or suspicious viruses that might affect your Android device even if you think that every download you undertake, even if with the Google Play is safe enough. And in order for your device to really stay safe, reports have stated that there will be some updates carried out with the “Verify Apps” service that will come with the new improved Google Play.
In case you didn’t know, Google introduced a service some time ago that scans everything you download from Google Play or even from the internet, to look for any suspicious malware that might interfere with your device. In case there is any virus present, the program, namely the Play Service, will notify you on the problem and will stop any further download.
Things will go even better with the update of the Play Service, as the “scanning feature” will not run individually for any app, but instead will be constantly watching on the background, being on a 24/h alert in case of any malware. Basically, it functions just like a desktop anti-virus program.
On the other hand, you may ask yourself: “What`s the purpose or running the program for malware if it can`t prevent it from breaching my device?” Well, once your device is scanned for any suspicious malware or viruses that are already threatening you phone, a continuously run in the back might prevent them from harming your smartphone or tablet.
And here comes the doubt that this scanning process might be affecting your device`s battery. Well, this approach may affect your battery at some point, but without any significant damage. At least, not with the present Play Service.
We will be able to find out more soon enough, when the fresh update Play Service will be available. Until then, don’t forget to write about the need of having an updated Play Service that could really handle the suspicious malware that is increasingly bombing our devices. After all, it is in our best interest to keep our handsets safe with the “Verify Apps”, so let Google do its job! Don’t you agree? Cheers!
