I installed some Android apps via downloading them into my server and browsing the link through the browser. While installation worked, but the problem is: there was no confirmation before installation. If the APK file was not came from trusted source, and if it actually contained malware, I might install that anyway as there was no confirmation step before installation. To prevent unwanted installation or review package contents before install, there should be at least a prompt before installing a new APK package.

For RPM packages I didn't installed them using this way, so I am not sure that there is some kind of confirmation. If there is not, it should be added anyway.

Still shows same behaviour after update. Due to APKs containing malware distributed by SMS messages, I am strongly worried by this issue.
