Suspicious Apps Overview
Suspicious Apps Overview use-case similar to the App Manager use-case, but it is triggered whenever a highly dangerous app is found on the device, urging user to uninstall the suspicious app. The app plugin shows apps that are highly dangerous screen in a list and allows an easy uninstall.
