Google Advanced Protection: malware protection for high-risk users

Advanced Protection Program Google, released for the first time in 2017, was created to protect users from malware applications, attacks Phishing and generally by malicious agents.

The program provides a high level of protection for high risk users such as politicians, journalists, activists, business leaders and others.

Advanced Protection Program (APP)

The high level of program protection is due to practices such as restricting access to data user, blocking illegal access to accounts, support for physical security keys and more.

And recently, Google he said that this program will also include protection against malware. For users with APPs, Google Play Protect will be automatically activated.

"Google Play Protect is Google's built-in malware protection for Android. It scans and verifies 100 billion applications every day to keep your device, data, and applications secure. Supported by Google's machine learning algorithms, it is constantly evolving to meet changing threats. "

Users who use additional protection apps rather than the official Google app cannot play on their devices.

"You can install apps outside of Play, through app stores pre-installed by your device manufacturer, and via Android Debug Bridge. Any apps you already have installed from sources other than Google Play will not be removed and will continue to be updated. ” says Google.

G-Suite users enrolled in the Advanced Protection Program will be protected for now, "however, there are equivalent safeguards as part of endpoint management."

"From March 18, these changes for Android will be gradually developed for Google Accounts registered in the Advanced Protection program. We will also release new malware protection measures for Chrome later this year. "
