The "Google Play Protect" feature protects the LG device from malicious apps by scanning the app for malware before downloading and during installation by Google, as well as periodically checking apps from unknown sources.

In case of a detection, a notification will be displayed on the LG device. Depending on the severity of the malware, the app can also be automatically deactivated by Play Protect until it is uninstalled.

Google Play Protect is a function of the App Store Google Play, so there is no direct option in the settings, but only a link to the function, where it can be enabled or disabled.
