Uptodown is a totally open app store, without any regional or country-specific restrictions. Plus, you don’t need to go through any sign-up processes or subscriptions here. In fact, you don’t even need a GooglePlay account. And, on top of allowing app downloads and APK installs from our own servers; Uptodown also detects XAPKs with additional OBB files. Make backups for any apps you download then pick and choose which ones you want to be updated — all from the comfort of a simple and trustworthy interface.
Along with our huge catalog of thousands of Android apps, we provide enriched editorial content on apps, including in-house screenshots and videos we make ourselves. All of our content is written by our team of writers with neutrality at the cornerstone of our services.
Uptodown for Android is a much-improved version of our web-browser edition, with all the unique features smartphone and tablet users require, like Android installs, app management, and a full alternative catalog of apps for you to enjoy.

protect your Android device from malware
The widespread existence of malware on Android is a fact that many users are not aware of, especially the so-called ransomware associated with traditional phishing or identity theft. It’s a process through which the attacker infects the information stored on the affected device and encrypts it, preventing access by the owner and asking for a monetary compensation, or “ransom” in order to get it back. To do this, the attacker attempts to trick the user by appearing to be a known service or company and thus achieve access to the login information illegally. Although this type of malicious software has always been linked to desktop computers, in reality, mobile devices are just as likely to being affected.
