Play Protect Status

Google Play Protect is a built-in malware protection for devices that are part of the Google Play ecosystem. When turned on, it automatically checks apps before they are installed and scans the device periodically in order to detect, disable and/or remove potentially harmful apps.

Google Play Protect can be turned off and users often do so, despite general recommendation to keep this protection on.

Malwarelytics for Android is able to verify whether Google Play Protect is turned on or off.

Triggering a Manual Check

Google Play Protect verification can be triggered manually in RaspManager by calling the isPlayProtectEnabled() method. A simple boolean answer is given.

val isPlayProtectEnabled = raspManager.isPlayProtectEnabled()

More information on general RASP feature configuration and usage can be found in this overview.
