In this post, you will get to know all about what a mod apk is and how you can download and install a mod apk on your own phone.
What exactly is a Mod Apk?
A mod apk is a modified version of an Android app that is distributed outside the Google Play store. People modify apps to add features not found in the original version of the app or game, while some do it to remove ads, change how the app behaves or get in-game resources.
People use different types of apps and programs to modify a regular apk and turn it into a mod apk with added or removed features.
Is a Mod Apk Safe to Use?
Most mod apks that you can download off the internet are safe to use, however in some cases there can be malicious apks that can harm your device.
However, if you are downloading the mod apk from a trusted place then you don’t have to worry about it. If you are still hesitating about downloading and installing a mod apk then there is a website that you can use to check if the downloaded mod apk is safe to use or not.
How to Check if a Mod Apk is Safe to Use?
The easiest way to check if a downloaded file or a mod apk is safe to use is to scan it using virustotal.com, which is a website that can help you detect if a mod apk or a file contains any malicious code in them.
1. To check if a mod apk contains malicious code, go to https://virustotal.com/ on the device that you downloaded the mod apk.
2. Once the website loads click on the ‘Choose File’ button. This will ask you to choose the apk file that you want to scan using your phone’s file manager.
3. After choosing the apk file the virustotal website will take a few seconds to min to scan the app and then will display the results of whether the app is safe to use or not.
Once the scan is complete, click on the summary tab to see if virustotal found any malicious code. If it says “No security vendors and no sandboxes flagged this file as malicious” then the mod apk is safe to use.
However, if it says “1+ security vendors and sandboxes flagged this file as malicious” then it’s not safe.
