Play Protect Status
Google Play Protect is a built-in malware defense on devices that are part of the Google Play ecosystem. When the protection is turned on it automatially scans installed apps and tries to prevent installation of harmful apps.
Users can turn Google Play Protect off and, despite a general recommendation to keep this protection on, they often do.
Malwarelytics for Android is able to check status of Google Play Protect. Whether it is turned on or off.
