About Google Certified Devices

Google, which is the biggest company in the world, is working with manufacturers and service providers across the globe to ensure the very best for the end user. To maintain the security standards, Google conducts hundreds of compatibility tests to ensure every handset exercising the Android technology adheres to the security standard set by Google.

All Android certified devices come with Google Play Protect out-of-the-box, which provides the users with a wide array of security features, including automatic malware scanning on your device. With GMS, all Android users get protection against privacy hacks, virus, malware, and other such adversities that plague handsets. When buying a new Android phone or tab, ensure that you look for the Google Play Protect or confirm that Google has certified your device.

We at NUU Mobile understand the importance of selling authentic and high quality handsets; all our Android phones come with a Google Play Protect logo on the box. This ensures that users get the best benefits by using a certified device, along with extra security provided by Play Protect.

For the uninitiated, Google Play Protect is installed into each device with Google Play. As per Google, they scan more than 50 billion apps on a daily basis. The GMS feature scans all yours apps for virus and alerts users about any app that may affect the handset adversely. Google has also introduced a revamped version of Android manager, known as Find My Device. Similar to Find My iPhone, it will allow users to locate, ring, lock and erase your Android devices—phones, tablets, and even watches.

There are two kinds of Android devices, one that have pre-installed Google apps (including the Play Store) and others that don’t. Needless to say, Google certifies the former set of devices. The best test to ensure that your device runs on a secure Android ecosystem is the GMS logo. We recommend that when buying an Android device, the user should check for the Google Play Protect logo on the box.
