“One thing I’ll immediately flag here: calling Wikipedia unknown is a bit weird.”

Epic’s security expert Mickens says despite Android’s scare screens about downloading apps outside of Google Play, “your phone is also vulnerable to attack by apps in the Play Store.”

“No, you do not see this warning,” says Mickens. He continues:

“It’s the same app, it’s just Wikipedia, it’s not like the potential nature of its maliciousness has changed... that’s a problem, and that’s why it’s important to look at these warning screens.”
