Patcay.com – For a while now, the world of Android phones has granted users unrestricted freedom to download applications outside the Play Store. However, this freedom also brings the risk of malware attacks and unforeseen security threats.
Google is not sitting idly and has responded with proactive measures, making significant updates to Google Play. Its primary goal is not only to enhance device security but also to introduce a fresh user interface (UI) for the Play Store.
Based on information uncovered through code disassembly on the GApps Flags & Leaks Telegram channel, Google is currently working on a new look for the Play Store. These changes focus on the verification process of user identity and payment methods when downloading applications.

Users will be prompted to configure these settings, with the hope of reducing the risk of unintentionally downloading paid apps or potentially harmful malware.
Although this new UI is still in the testing phase, and there’s no official announcement regarding its launch date, Google has already implemented additional security measures. For instance, Google Play Protect is being updated to provide maximum protection against malware attacks by conducting real-time scans of APKs. Users also have the option to enable Safe Browsing on Android, a feature that provides immediate warnings about threats while browsing the web.
While the exact launch schedule for the new Play Store UI is yet to be determined, users are encouraged to take preventive measures. In the Play Store settings, ensure that every purchase transaction requires authentication.
The latest version of Google Play Protect also allows periodic scans of all apps on the device. With these efforts, Google is committed to simplifying access to security settings, enabling Android users to better protect their data and devices.
