HiĀ mppatel,

Thanks for posting here.

Trend Micro's way of detecting malicious files is by reputation. If the app has a reputation of being malicious, it will be prevented from being installed.

Trend Micro Mobile Security app has a pre-installation scan that will tell you if a certain app in the Playstore has malicious contents.

If ever a certain app with such malicious content is installed on your phone, Trend Micro Mobile Security will detect it through a scan.

Regards,
Pat
