AV-TEST anti-virus test shows: Google Play Protect is disappointing

via:cnBeta.COM     time:2019/4/22 18:01:34     readed:187


(From: AV-TEST, viaSoftpedia)

A variety of software scored 13 points, including:

AhnLab V3 Mobile Security

Avast Mobile Security

AVG Antivirus Free

ESET Endpoint Security

Kaspersky Lab Internet Security for Android

Sophos Mobile Security

Symantec Norton Mobile Security

And Trend Micro Mobile Security

All of the above products received 6 points of protection, 6 points of usability, and 1 point of functional scores, with almost no performance.


Products with a deduction of 0.5 points include:



G Data


And Android security software from SK Telecom.

Unfortunately, the official Google Play Protect rating by the Google Play Store is terrible.

AV-TEST points out that Google Play Protect scored only 3 points for availability scores, and protection performance and functionality were directly awarded zero points.

When detecting the latest Android malware in real time, Google Play Protect can only block 62% of malicious files (the industry average is 97.8%).

The latest Android malware detection in the past 4 weeks was slightly higher than 69.2%, but still far below the industry average of 98.2%.

Finally, Play Protect also triggered at least 189 false positives when installing and using legitimate apps through the Google Play Store.
