3. Is APKPure Safe?

Using mobile phones is becoming of domination in our life. The more we get used to it, the more we cannot bear losing it. It's true that we are all phone addicts in this era and the next coming. That's why people attach serious importance to device security.

Malware can illegally access and obtain personal information on your mobile device and in the worst case, leak and sell it out. That's why APKPure devotes itself so much to keeping that possibility away from its loved users.

APKPure declines all APKs with 'debug' certificate, which are not safe. Also, there is a Trusted Badge that confirms that the developer used a trusted and verified digital signature. The downloadable file is original and it has not been modified in any way.

Also, APKPure uses SHA1 to check whether the identification of certificate is reliable and secure. That involves a cryptography problem. For more information, you may please get down to the following authoritative information to check the reason:

1. All APKPure.com apps are verified prior to publishing.

2. We make sure that the cryptographic signatures for new versions of all previously published apps match the original ones, which means we know if the new version APKs were signed by the real devs or someone pretending to be them.

3. For new apps that have never been published on APKPure.com, we try to match the signatures to other existing apps by the same developer. If there's a match, it means that the same key was used to sign a previously known legitimate app, therefore validating the new upload. If we're unable to verify the legitimacy of a new APK, we will simply not publish it on APKPure.com.

Applications will be downloaded as APKs (Android Package Files), which is similar to .exe file to install programs on Windows computers.

10. APK to APPX Converter

APPX is actually a simple yet secure way to package an app. Appx is the app package format used by the app developers to develop Windows store apps.

A main goal for packaging and deploying apps was to eliminate the need for installation scripts altogether, making the process more straightforward. Windows Store apps were additionally challenged to support both existing technologies for native-code and managed-code, plus new technology delivered through the Windows Runtime.

More Alternatives Like APKPure

Let alone Apple App Store and Google Play Store, there are still some third-party app stores. If you're looking for more app store alternatives, you should keep your eye on this part. Let me introduce some of the best app store for you.

Amazon Appstore

Meet one of Google's greatest competitors, Amazon. Amazon offers the Kindle Fire and, more recently, the Fire Phone, Android powered devices that run a custom flavor of Android, Fire OS. Despite the custom operating system, a large chunk of Android apps will run fine on Fire OS. If yours doesn't, then it will probably only take a few tweaks to get it up and running.

Samsung Galaxy Apps

From the company that manufacturers the most Android phones it is no surprise that Samsung has developed their own app store. Compared to other app stores, Samsung Galaxy Apps has a relatively small number of apps but this can be a positive for apps to stand out.


APKMirror is a third-party APK Store just like APKPure. The site has simple design and shows the latest updated and newly-released apps day by day. However, it lacks of game resources. If you want to download some popular apps, you'd be in a right place. However, if you're intending to explore new adventures here, you might be disappointed.

User Reviews
