This popped up on me a couple of days ago.  I told Avast to remedy it, and it said it was re-downloading the original.

Then this morning it popped up again.

DPS is part of Android 10, so I am unsure.

Has anyone else gotten this?

Hi, we need way more details - the type of your device, app and Android version, any ROM modifications? Thanks.

I have the same phone and version, no mods, got the same message. I popped over here to check before telling Avast to remedy it bc I wasn't sure what redownloading DPS would do to my phone and it seemed weird for something that's part of the Android system to get marked as malware? DPS did just update so maybe there's some wires crossed with Avast?

I also just received this notification on my pixel with Android 10, no mods (build QP1A.191005.007.A1)

Can Avast tell me if this is false positive?
