Unknown apps

I've been using the Sophos mobile security app and have noticed I've got all ticks except,   Install from unknown sources.  I don't install any apps except from the play store.  Is it OK to leave it unticked.

  • Hi Bill Elwood,

    Yes, you can leave it unchecked. However, if you block the apps getting installed from unknown sources will prevent unauthorized 3rd party applications. It's just another protection you can have and its optional based on your requirement.
