What is Google Play Protect

Google introduced its Android security namely ‘Google Play Protect’. It does not come with the downloaded app. It automatically installed with the update of ‘Google Play Services’. I have checked it works with Android Jellybean, Android KitKat and the next operating system such as Android Lollipop, Android 6,7,8.

What is Google Play Protect?

Google says to let it manage the installation of apps and the users should be in the peace of mind in the palm of your hand. It is a security blanket for your android device. It scans regularly for the installed app for security. It provides guidance to users when they download an app from Google Play Store.

It is an on-access security system. It never sleeps and continues to scan and protect your device. It works with Google Play services and sandboxing methods to keep your device safe. It updates on the background and those are the silent updates and it aims to provide the latest mobile security.

Find My Device:

It has ‘Find My Device’ as a device administrator to keep track of your device. Sign in to Google Account when the device misplaced. It can remotely lock your device. Display the message on the lock screen can even erase all data to clear data from the lost device. What it enables you to control the data within your reach and even if the device misplaced, stole or lost you can control your data and keep it safe and private.

They provides full control of your data with you from ‘Find My Device’. If they misplace it, it locks the phone so that your near and dear ones if they found your device will get this message and this makes your data locked until you get the device. If your phone lost or stolen then, you can erase data remotely and completely lock your phone to safeguard your private information.

Google Play Protect always runs in the background:

The power of Google and present in each and every Android device makes it powerful and in an estimation, it is fifty billion apps scanning done by ‘Google Play Protect’ in a day to make your life easier. Apart from this all android apps go through rigorous android application scanning and sandboxing before they appear with Google Play Store. When app developer violates Google term and conditions they are suspended from providing the app to Google Play Store.

This makes running on Google Play Store stubborn, and here security of users is paramount for Google. When you download the app it scans and approved by Google beforehand. Apart from this ‘Google Play Protect’ scans billions of apps daily in million Android devices to understand the behaviour of apps and from there it also detects the harmful behaviour of rogue apps.

Apart from this with the regular updates of Google Chrome for Android, and safe browsing is preinstalled with it, warning to visitors to unsafe sites so that you get warning about it and taken back to safer sites. This keeps your Android device safer and completely negate chances of downloading of malware from a web browser.

How to enable Google Play Protect on an android phone?
  1. First makes sure before downloading app enable ‘Google Play Protect’ from Google Play Store.
  2. Open your device’s Google Play Store app
  3. Tap Menu > Play Protect icon
  4. Download apps from Google Play Store only.
  5. Before downloading app do see recommendations from Google Play Protect.
  6. Add Google accounts for backing up your device.
  7. Set a screen lock.
  8. Go to device settings and then security and the device administrator and activate ‘Find My Device’ to allow to find my device to block or erase a lost device.
  9. In this way also Google Play Services cannot be uninstalled.
  10. Then last not the least update Google Apps to receive latest Google services.

Greenify Wakelock

Since Android 6 application battery management known as application power saving which can save battery power by managing power sources of app efficiently so that, it consumes less battery output. It comes under auto power save mode such as always or automatic. Most of application power saving processes comes under battery optimisation process and saves battery life efficiently.

Most of older versions of the android, does not have efficient application management, thus most of the apps runs in background and stays there. Most of the rooted Android device has this facility. older Android operating systems do not imply this. Greenify is a good option, and it is a wakelock and works nicely with older Android devices.

How Greenify Works?

Greenify works with rooted android devices. You can download it from Google Play Store. It has free version and paid versions. Google in newer android versions introduces Doze mode which works like, the app running and when it stops it also stops all its important battery consuming apps.

Greenify Wakelock is a good idea to use its older version of the Android. It speeds up device which has one GB of RAM. When wakelock detector detects that Greenify employs almost 16 percentages of time to wake the device and the app itself is consuming higher amount of her battery.

There is no option inside Greenify app to disable it. Now, the question arises whether use of such app is saving battery life or eating out battery rapidly. It runs the phone is rapid manner there is no doubt as within lesser RAM devices, it stops apps and this makes phone perform maximum.

Then another question is whether, stopping apps abruptly of course without root is going to majke phone good or weaken phone further which is slowly not getting security and culminative update due to older android operating system.

It is all about identifying battery draining apps and then allowing wakelock such as Greenify without root to work it and stops that apps still the users allow it. It is simple but older operating system does not have such permissions and capacity to handle such requests.

In the long run, it might make such an the operating system vulnerable to stop when such wakelock are there for longer durations. From Android 6 and on, android has its own battery management such as Doze which recognises application consuming batteries automatically and then stops these apps when these are not in use.

Greenify vs Doze

It is definitely the most advanced methods to treat and find such processes where with Greenify you need to identify such processes and then allow these to stop with Greenify. You need to provide Device Administrator right to Greenify to work and in addition to it you need to allow various other permissions to work it.

Doze mode can appear and work with Android 6 or later. It cannot work with older android versions. Greenify works nicely with older than well as newer android versions. Greenify works nicely when the device is running. Doze works only when the device is in the state of hibernation.

Greenify works nicely, and it empowers users to hibernate app only when it is not running. It works when the phone is in the state of idle or when device automatically locks. It automatically stops these apps and hibernate it automatically.

Greenify is not for standard users. It is for geeks. You need to distribute it and allow devices to determine which app to run in the background and which app to stay in the state of hibernation. In android 4.4 it drains batteries, but it speeds up the phone. Most of android 4 devices come up with 1 GB of RAM. Greenify works nicely, and it performs high speed phone functions.

In these android devices DOZE mode is not there. With Greenify, most of functions related with app perform rapidly. Though, due to wakelock of device in order to hibernate each app this consumes battery. On the other hand app management gets nicel boost with it.

Doze does not hibernate system apps. Greenify paid versions can hibernate system apps. In this way, it is unique. With its paid version, the hibernate app can show notification. Normally, in Doze mode this is not there but with android 8 and above with doze mode hibernate app show notification though in the previous version of android such as android 6 and android 7 this facility is not there but with Greenify this is there.
