Aurora Store vs. *.apk Download from official site

Hi

Aurora Store is working without Google account.

I need to install Protonmail and Signal Messenger.

Should I download on their site *.apk or use Aurora Store? What are pros and cons?
How you experts do it?

Have a nice weekend

Install first from their site, so that any new update can’t be faked, signature will fail.

There are 2 ways:

  1. Official website… – official git-repo (if available).
  2. YalpStore+/AuroraStore - These may have significant changes, based on if they are released on PlayStore and or PlayStore Test Versions.

  3. If you want to go safe, install from their official site.
  4. “Fill your choice here”. :stuck_out_tongue:

I would recommend you to go with official site to download mate,
It’s easy download and install apk from official site.
It’s easy and saves your time :smile:
Cheers to you

Excuse my ignorance, but what do you mean by this?

Android has for security reasons a way to reject updates from apps not signed from the same developer.

So, you install an app from some store, but if I want to update your app with my app that I’ve hacked and resigned, it won’t work.

The Signal apk that can be downloaded from their website is different than the one you get from the Play Store: it has an auto-update function. The website version is usually updated last in their incremental releasescheme.
