Third party apps:

Aside from apps from AppGallery, Huawei’s new security feature will also issue advisory for non-compliant applications downloaded from third-party sources and consist of viruses, privacy violations, and malware and ensure to inform the users regarding these alerts ahead of installation.

In China, the feature is powered by the national anti-fraud app program, which helps it to easily identify the latest mobile application threats.
