I am not sure how many people have read this news but is the Aptoide app store still safe to use on the PPM after this breach ? Is this something that Phillips needs to be concerned about? I haven’t got my device yet, but I’m worried to use that app store with my credentials @PhilipsEngineering
You don’t really need to register to use the app so I don’t think it’s much of a big deal. And breach happens even to popular and bigger companies. Anyway, aptoide isn’t really good. There are better stores you can use
Which better ones can you use on the PPM then ?
or pick up the APK from a phone/tablet and upoad it to the PPM…
I received an email this week from Firefox Monitor advising my email address was found in a data breach at Aptoide, on 13 April 2020. This is the store preloaded onto the PPM where I registered to find more apps. Firefox reports that 20,000,000 accounts were exposed in the breach, so I’m not the only one.

Thanks for informing us, @dencentral. We are evaluating internally if we need to take any action.
@PhilipsEngineering I’m glad I created this post. Hopefully the matter gets resolved swiftly.
