    This is understandable. But I've personally never got any malware from third party app stores and I've used many.

    Well, I got (low grade) malware from Google Play, so there's that.

    Would be great to see an App Store vs Play Store comparison.

    I agree. Though I doubt that both ( Google and Apple ) would release comparable data.

    i think they are under external fire after the latest investigations and need to act.
    beside play store i also use f-droid apps or like adguard premium a trusted vendor.
    when not in store i save several apps offline and i use VT to verify a while after saving.

    and sometimes like the past few day i view my installed apps a clear some out, away 4evar.
    background was a too fast draining accu without reason.
