- https://www.computerworld.com/article/3012630/android-security-audit.htmlAndroid has long had the ability to monitor your device for harmful code or suspicious activity — no third-party apps or add-ons required. And while the system should be enabled by default on any reasonably current device, it's a good idea to occasionally confirm that everything's turned on and working the way it should.
Mosey on over to the Security & Location section of your system settings, tap the line labeled "Google Play Protect," and then make sure "Scan device for security threats" is checked. That'll allow Android's app verification system to keep an eye on all apps on your device, even after they're installed, and make sure none of them does anything dangerous. The scanning will run silently in the background and won't ever bother you unless something suspicious is found.
Odds are, you'll never even know it's there. But it's a valuable piece of protection and peace of mind to have.
I don't wanna check if my phone is being hacked. I wanna know how easy it is to hack my phone.
