Google Play Protect

Google Play Protect scans the apps during and after download for potential risks or malware, and rescans the already installed apps at regular intervals.

If a risk or security vulnerability is detected, we are notified immediately and can uninstall the corresponding app.
If a higher threat level is detected, Play Protect automatically disables the downloaded app and waits until uninstallation.

Google Play Protect is a Play Store service, which is why we are redirected to it when the settings are opened.

Device admin apps

We can designate apps as device administrators, who will be given special rights and access to the OnePlus smartphone.
This includes changing system settings or remotely deleting the smartphone's data, for example, with separate access to internal memory.

The device management apps also receive permission to disable or change the unlock password.

For example, the FindMyDevicefunction isgiventhe above-mentioned access to delete all data on the device in case of loss or theft.

Note: It is strongly recommended that only trusted apps and services be designated as device administrators to avoid potential security risks or damage.
