Death of apps store / aurora and all other apps stores?

Before you get too upset, note that based on what they found in the APK teardown, this is a completely optional feature. This is an opt-in feature which means that users will need to specifically enable it if they want to prevent sideloading. Why would anyone want to do that? Maybe for that extra layer of security and to prevent someone from installing an app that shouldn’t be installed on their phones.

Even if it is not optional, I don’t think it could be done. Google has already been punished for less in the EU.
