    Can't comment on how safe it is, but I couldn't find any pirated apps there. If I'm looking for a previous version of an app, apk mirror is my site of choice. :)

    I'm not sure what you mean? Are you asking you if it's illegal to install apk files that don't come from Google?

    I mean sorry about not being clear. That is it illegal to install apps that are from the google play store but from 3rd party websites? Like apk mirror or android drawer

    No google doesn't own third party apps and are not the only store that has them. So downloading and using apps offered at the google play store does not make them illegal.

    Ok thanks. One more questions is there a way to scan an .apk for malware?

    3rd party has always advantages over its counterpart.Like some games are free where as we have to pay in google play store.
