This morning I received   a notification from kaspersky internet security “scan new app google play store”, i forgot the exact words.

I am  confused because    I haven’t installed a new app.    I ran the scan  anyway and  KIS didnt any virus or malware.

 

I also ran malwarebytes scan and it did not find anything. Worth noting  that in malwarebytes scan  result ,  the numbers of apps are the same with previous scans which is 259 apps.

 

Both KIS and  malwarebytes are the free version. I am using android.

Hello @it's timur

Welcome!

  • It’s a generic Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS), message, sent whether there’s a newly installed app & or an updated app, from Google play store.
  • Agreed, it can be a bit of a worry, when you see the message and know you’ve not installed a new app; do not worry, KIS does not distinguish between new & or updated apps, it sends the same message for both. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Oh, it’s because of  an update.  Thank you for the answer.
