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.
