Xiaomi is one of the brands that best stands out in the world of mobile technology due to its unsurpassed graphical interface and excellent functionality. However, there are details that still need improvement or that at least annoy a specific group of users. One of those details is that it constantly keeps scanning apps and this takes away some usability at the time. So now, let’s see how we can disable this feature.
Application security is the process of making applications more secure by finding, correcting, and improving their security. Much of this happens during the development phase but it includes tools and methods to protect applications once they are deployed. This is becoming more important as applications are increasingly targeted by hackers.
The Xiaomi brand phones by default are configured so that every time you install an application, instead of installing itself automatically as in the rest of Android terminals, a preliminary analysis of the app is made, which makes everything become slower.
This is an additional MIUI security measure that does not make much sense, since Google Play Protect already analyzes the application itself, both before installing it and once it is installed.
How to disable MIUI app analysis
MIUI is a complete ROM that, among other functions, puts a lot of emphasis on the topic of malware analysis. In addition to the security measures that Google Play already has.
MIUI uses Avast technology to analyze applications before installing them. This slows down the installation process. Luckily, we can easily disable this.
The first thing we have to do is open the MIUI security application. This application is responsible for controlling that there are no security threats on the device. Among its functions, it is activated by default that all applications that you install on the mobile are analyzed. Within this application, we follow these steps.
- Click on the Settings button, located at the top right.
- Press on ‘Security Analysis’.
- Finally, click on the ‘Analyze before installing’ button to disable it.
Easy right?. As you can see, it is not difficult to deactivate the scanning apps function, although it is somewhat hidden within the settings of the security app. By deactivating this analysis, the applications will install more quickly. Regarding security, you do not have much to fear, since Play Protect is in charge of controlling whether or not an app is secure.
