Some Huawei EMUI 11 phones showing Google Play Protect error [sideload]
Although Huawei and Google have never been in an official conflict but being a US-based firm, Google had to withdraw its software service support from the Huawei smartphone. Under these circumstances, the Chinese phone maker introduced HMS (Huawei Mobile Services) as an alternative for the GMS (Google Mobile Services) for the users.
Yet, this is a temporary solution as the global users still rely on EMUI system software, a custom software skin of Google’s open-source mobile operating system – Android. But now seems that the leading internet service provider wants to completely block the Chinese users and smartphone from accessing the GSpace.
To be mentioned, the users of Huawei branded phones have discovered various alternative ways to use the GMS as undoubtedly it’s a big service platform with a massive userbase. On this matter, recent news discloses the users accessing GMS on Huawei EMUI 11 phones encountering Google Play Protect errors.
It’s well known that Huawei phones before the Huawei P30 series cannot access GMS app due to the lack of a Google Play Protect certificate. Therefore, Huawei phone users on EMUI 10.1 or EMUI 11 have to sideload these apps via different third-party solutions that aren’t safe but the consumers, most of the time, get success to port Google apps on the corresponding phones.
Before going into a deep discussion, let first know about this Google error.
Google Play Protect Error:
It’s a kind of scanning program to detect the application being installed on Android phones. It ensures devices’ safety by alerting the users against harmful apps and sometimes also removes them. If an app shows the play protected errors means, that has some potential to harm the device or breach the software policy.
Coming back to the topic, it’s not the first time when a Huawei EMUI 11 device is showing such an issue because it’s not an officially certified Google Android certified device or software.
Most interestingly, this is not a universal case, because other phones running on EMUI 10 such as Huawei Mate 30 Pro aren’t displaying this error and running fine, after sideloading G apps. On the other hand, users can still block the notifications using the IceBox or can use a Hybrid GMS from the Huawei AppGallery.
Huawei EMUI October 2021 Updates List
