Security Auditor detects the following system settings that affects the device security:
•. USB debugging is intended for developers and allows copying data from PC to the device and vice versa, installing the applications on the device, viewing their logs and deleting them in some cases. If you are not a developer and do not use the debug mode, you are recommended to turn this mode off. To open the corresponding device settings section, tap on the screen with detailed information on the problem.
•. Installing application from unknown sources is one of the main reasons devices with Android 7.1 and earlier get infected.
Applications downloaded from elsewhere other than the official store are likely to be unsafe and become a threat to device security. To mitigate risks of installing the unsafe applications, you are recommended to disable installation of the applications from unknown sources. To open the corresponding device settings section, tap on the screen with detailed information on the problem.
You should scan for threats all the applications you install on your device. Before scanning, make sure that Dr.Web virus databases are .
•. In this case, Dr.Web cannot immediately inform you on detected threats. This compromises security of your device. That is why, you are recommended to enable Dr.Web notifications in the settings of your device.
•. If any user certificates are detected on your device, Security Auditor detects and displays them. Certificates may be used by a third party to monitor your network activity. If you are not aware why these certificates are installed on your device, you are recommended to remove them.
