How to fix the Play Protect block in Lucky Patcher

Lucky Patcher does not stand out for being a safe application. Therefore, it is normal that when installing or using it, the Play Protect warnings, which is the antivirus integrated into Android, detects it as a threat. This security software is designed to scan and detect malicious applications that may contain adware, malware, or spyware. Play Protect is activated by default, and to prevent it from blocking Lucky Patcher, you must deactivate it.
