Worried about possible malware – Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange

I’m hoping someone can help me here. Yesterday I was doing some research for an essay when I clicked a website (very dumb of me, who never clicks suspicious websites or links) that redirected me. I immediately backed off, the page didn’t load. If anything I spent about a second there. Being the paranoid person I am, I have malware bytes installed, scanned, clear. Avast, clear. Sophos warned me about a PUA, which was a .com.google.chrome(some letters) file. Immediately deleted it, but then again Sophos also warned me about another app being a PUA, when it’s in fact, safe.

I cleared the google chrome cache. I’d like to note that I DID NOT download anything, I didn’t click any links, I didn’t click anything but the back button, I didn’t give any permissions. I’m on android 10, Xiaomi redmi note 7 (encrypted), and updated to miui12 last night. My phone isn’t acting odd or anything.

I’m just extremely worried about being infected. I checked that website on hybrid analysis which came back as malicious (attack method as hooking), virus total said the same, but google safe browsing didn’t detect anything, this site was detected as malicious on 2-3 checkers. I was on google chrome at the time.
Should I be concerned?

I don’t do banking on my phone as I have a separate apple device for that.

Is there anything else I can do, for peace of mind? Thanks in advance.

APK Mirror update – Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange

I recently updated the google play system via APK mirror and now have the January 1, 2021 version. However some others told me that the only thing the APK mirror update does is change the date (in my case from December to January), and that Google will later send the same update for the same date, which will be the real update.

Anyone else heard anything about this? Are APK mirror updates legit the same update google sends, or it simply only changes the date and nothing else?

This is for an android pixel phone.

Connecting to linux hotspot – Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange

I have no wifi (just cable router) and I wish to connect my phone to internet using my laptop’s hotspot. The phone is Android 9, the laptop has Debian 10 linux. I have created a hotspot using network manager. I have tryed using the GUI applet and also using the command:

nmcli device wifi hotspot con-name "debian_hotspot" ssid "debian_hotspot" password "passw"

The phone can see the hotspot, but when connecting I enter the password but the phone does not connect. Another laptop could connect to this hotspot just fine and had shared internet connection (using the gui created hotspot).

Why is my phone not connecting? How can I create a hotspot for my phone?

The command was taken from https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/234552/create-wireless-access-point-and-share-internet-connection-with-nmcli

Skip voicemail intro – Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange

When I have a voicemail and go to listen to it, after I enter my PIN, how can I skip the computerized voice slowly telling me the time and phone number the voice mail is from, and just listen to the voicemail?

So there is this settop box in india, called airtel internet tv(codename ganesa) It’s gone 2 years with no updates, stuck on android 6. it has no usb adb but does have wireless adb. got root using dirtycow and updated default.prop to this:

#

After a quick reboot wifi adb went rip, I dont have a male-to-male usb cable rn, but can quickly make one if it is the only option!

So I would want to regen stock default.prop

Many thanks!

Android studio sony emulator – Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange

Android Emulators are based off the Google Android Studio SDK Emulator and don’t contain any Manufacturer proprietary code/API.

The general properties to change when creating a hardware profile are screen resolution, screen size and RAM. If needed there are additional hardware properties you can configure.

If there is a particular model you need to duplicate, creating an emulator with the same screen resolution, screen size, RAM and OS version would be a good place to start.

password manager recommendation – Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange

I have a password manager called keepass installed on my laptop. I really like the feature of autotyping. But it cames to a android I have installed KeePassDx it is really annoying for me to unlock the database search for the entry a want, copy username, go to the browser, put the username, then go back to the app, copy the password, again go to the browser and paste it.
Is another method less painful, with less steps to do this?
