    I don't understand the upvotes :x I thought most people on here would have the "only install from play" disabled.

    They probably are, but I would assume the many regulars are at least somewhat careful, and only install from trusted sources, things like Apkmirror or F-droid.

    And not just installing whatever pirated apps from anywhere. That's often how users do get into trouble, apps that have been hacked with malicious payloads, root exploits and trojans, especially from China. :thumbsupdroid:
