Windows 7: Google adding continuous rogue Android app scans

Google adding continuous rogue Android app scans

Google is updating Android to continuously check phones and tablets for rogue apps, picking out those with malware behavior even if they've managed to squeeze through the initial verification. The new feature, which builds on Android's existing "Verify apps" system that sifts through software at the point of installation to flag up any concerns, will add real-time and ongoing checks.

Google compares the new app scanning to an alarm service in the home. In that metaphor, if the initial Verify apps functionality is the equivalent to a door or window sensor, then, the ongoing checks are more like movement sensors tracking unwanted behavior once indoors.
