Why Download Aptoide?
The main reason that you would want to download Aptoide isn’t just the choice of apps; it’s the fact that it makes it easier to download and manage all your apps. Downloading an app is just as fast as it is on the official app store, but you get one extra feature – rollback. If you are not happy with the app or game version, you are one, simply rollback to the earlier version. It is one of the easiest apps to use and offers over 30,000 apps and games. Plus you can upload apps form your own device, pop them into a store and make them available for all users.
Is It Legal?
Yes, it is. There has been doubt cast over this in the past, much of this down to the fact that it is a decentralized app, with each user being able to manage a store of their own. So you are liable for usage of the apps you download as it is beyond the control of Aptoide. In terms of security, the app is free from viruses and malware, but you are urged to only install it from the source we provide and also install the updates issued by the developers s and when released.
Is it Safe?
Aptoide has grown significantly over the last few years and, while it didn’t get off to a great start, the developers have worked hard on making it safe. Because the app allows users to upload apps from their own devices, it takes more work to ensure it stays safe for everyone to use. To counteract malware and adware, they use an anti-malware system that is continuously scanning every store in Aptoide and filtering out unwanted content. As a way of reassuring you, all apps that come from a trusted source are marked with a green badge – if the badge isn’t there, the app or game may not be safe for you to download.
