Some Huawei EMUI 11 phones showing Google Play Protect error [sideload]

Published

on

Huawei EMUI 11

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.

Huawei Play Protect errors

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.

October 2021 EMUI updates List

Huawei released the October 2021 EMUI security patch details ahead of time and the company has also confirmed the devices that will participate under the October 2021 EMUI security updates rollout program.

We know that Huawei has skipped the August security patch rollout for some of the Huawei devices, instead, the Chinese tech maker decided to put a send button in September for different models and in various markets around the globe.

But the biggest concern is that “whether and when Huawei will send a new major update to the global consumers?” In our view, it’s a pretty legit question and remained unexplored up until now. However, we may witness, the launch of HarmonyOS 3.0 at the Huawei Developer Conference 2021 alongside HarmonyOS 3.0.

Meanwhile, the security and software improvements update rollout continues to expand and there are a lot of new devices that are ready in line to receive their share of the software update.
