The Google Play virtual store still has many dangerous apps. They compromise users' smartphones, display unwanted ads, or collect sensitive data. Fortunately there is a virtual store of safe applications called F-Droid.
It includes few titles, but they are all carefully analyzed before they are published. New apps that do not follow users and do not include viruses appear every day in the store. F-Droid can not replace Google Play completely but offers a safe alternative
The developers of the project collaborate with researchers from Yale Privacy Lab and Exodus Privacy
F-Droid can be installed on almost any smartphone with android running on the phone at F-droid.org.
