Epic Games recently made a controversial decision to release the Android version of Fortnite on its website instead of the Google Play store. The reason for this was driven by Google’s share of the distribution platform. Epic CEO Tim Sweeney decided because the cost was unreasonable, but it triggered a wave of security concerns because it Game lovers are more likely to get into trouble scams or download potentially harmful files.

Google is aware of these concerns and has stepped in to protect users as much as possible. Reddit users have discovered, searching for Fortnite or Fortnite Battle Royale will warn that the game is not available in the Play Store.

The Android version of Fortnite was first released in the form of a Samsung Galaxy device yesterday, but it should be available for other Android phones in the next few days. If you are not interested in waiting, in fact, someone has modified the APK on the Internet so that you can run the game on any device, but this may bring a series of risks.
