Hi Keila,

Thanks for reaching out.

First, we would like to let you know that we have a version that is available on Playstore now which is the World version of Manga Rock.

Second, we can guarantee that it is safe to download our app’s apk.

Have a good day!

Dear Edna, there's nothing here.
https://play.google.com/store/search?q=manga%20rock&c=apps

Do provide a direct link if I'm wrong.

As for "we can guarantee that it is safe", ehm. No you cannot, exactly because of the requirement to turn OFF the single most important security feature. Which is not allowing Android to install software from sources that aren't cryptographically verified with Google as the mediator.

You cannot guarantee:
- The APK was not altered during the download (force HTTPS including HSTS on your website please).
- Malware getting onto the system from a completely different source won't abuse the lowered security setting Manga Rock requires for install.
- Any future updates you install being from the same publisher.

These are serious security issues that are not present with regular play store installations.

My guess for the removal from the play store AND amazon for that matter is that it facilitates piracy and is a direct competitor for services Google and Amazon offer.

Keila if security concerns you, you may consider using an anti-malware app installer. Even in the play store bad stuff slips through and is not completely safe. Unknown sources makes the situation worse. Using the scanners will give you at least some protection back.
