WHAT DOES THE APK FILE NEED? HOW DO YOU INSTALL APK FILE? APK FILE GUIDE
WHAT IS AN APK FILE ?
An FILE .APK file is an extension of an application that can be installed on Android. It is not like installing an app from the Play Store because you have to do it manually and, if you do not activate the right settings, the procedure will not be successful. Perhaps this article will be trivial to those who are already practical Android but others may find it interesting and useful, especially if they are having to install an APK file for the first time.
Some may need to install APKs on their device, but if they are not experienced, they will not know how to do it.
HOW TO INSTALL AN ANDROID APK
First you have to go to the settings of the device (some smartphones and tablets have customizations from the producers, but generally the items are the same). Once you have reached the settings, you must look for the security settings and open them.
Having done this you will find yourself in front of a series of voices that manage the security and privacy of your device. You have to look for the one concerning the installation of the app, which has the name of “unknown origins”.
By default this setting is disabled, so you will find the selector shifted to the left, or an empty box (depending on the manufacturer’s customization). You will not have to do anything but move the selector or click on the box, in order to activate the function. You will get a message that will say the risks you will run if you activate the setting, click on ok and you’re done.
At this point look for the file apk that you have downloaded (or download), click on it and then on “install”. Wait for the installation and choose whether to open the app or close the installer.
