Android 14 may prevent older apps from being installed – and that’s a good thing

The change coming with Android 14 will put restrictions on the apps that smartphone users can install on their devices, even if they sideload the software instead of installing it through the Play Store.

Google’s change should help stop the spread of malware that exploits exploits found in older versions of the Android operating system, although if you use the sideloader a lot, it can make it a bit harder to use non-Play Store apps.
