Play Store - 1 Harmfull App Removed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Rocking my beloved Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus and recently noticed the below message in the play protect section of the store 



The annoying thing is that pressing the refresh button states "play protect is scanning" and then returns with the same message stating "1 Harmfull App Removed" 


Anyone seen this before? There doesn't seem to be a log of either what named app was removed and again the message does not dissappear 


Anyone got any suggestions? 

Software status below...

I've not had any apps removed so I'm not certain, but if you tap the banner (not the refresh icon, but somewhere else on "1 harmful app removed") I believe it gives you more information.

I don't work for Floatplane Media, so any Floatplane comments that I make are my own and may be incorrect or in conflict with the official view.

Hmm yeah tapping the title did appear to expand out however there was no extra info or app name... There was, an option to hide, which when tapped removed the notification 


Think will just chalk this up as an anomoly 

I'm a seasoned android user and don't install dozens of apps like the old days


Hey ho

I had a few retro console emulators "removed for Harmful behavior" a while back. Wonder if this is a similar scenario. 

If I don't respond, please tag me in your post. I'm probably AFK or responding to someone else.
