Since we have taught you to install non-marketplace apps, it’s our duty to inform you about potential risks and how to avoid them. You should be careful using this feature, now since your native OS is not looking out for you, you have to be really very careful about it.  

Outside apps are one of the hottest routes for malware and trojans to make into your mobile. They risk your phone for potential financial, social and personal damages. Following are the risks regarding the installation of outside apps.

 Risk # 1: Malware, Crapware, Trojans, etc can get installed to your mobile.
 Risk # 2: Your mobile can be compromised as a pineapple, and your phone can be used as a routing device for hacking other phones and devices. 
 Risk # 3: You may damage your phone, as outside apps are not vetted through Google they are more susceptible to bad coding, or harmful coding. 


But there are ways by which you can prevent these risks from being a catastrophe. 

Precaution # 1:  Have an anti virus installed, you must have an anti virus or some protection software installed on your device. We recommend malware bytes and awast.
Precaution # 2:  Use legitimate app market places like Amazon, Play store, App Store. But if you can’t use these market places, do see reviews about the site if it has a history of providing harmful apps.
Precaution #  3: Research about the app you are about to install before you actually install it. If it has negative or no reviews at all, do not install it. 
Precaution #  4: Look for casual indications, like pornographic content, Russian or Chinese text but the app is in English so it’s been probably compromised already.
