Help: Android application false positive
« on: November 27, 2023, 12:51:57 PM »
Hello,
I am the developer of the Android application:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kokesoft.relojparlante&hl=en_US&pli=1

I have recently received messages and user views that Avast is flagging my app as infected with a Trojan. I have thoroughly reviewed the code and found no malicious code, it seems like a false positive.

An FP form have been summited today. Any help to resolve this quickly would be appreciated as the false positive has been affecting my app reviews negatively.

Could it be due to obfuscating the code?

buildTypes {
        release {
            minifyEnabled true
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-project.txt'
        }
    }

thank you

Unfortunately as an Avast user, I can't answer that.
