Do you know what Com.google.provision is?
Com.google.provision is an infection that Android users need to be cautious about. According to the data provided by Google, there are over 2 billion active devices using Android every month, which means that many users might be facing this clandestine threat. Unfortunately, it has proven to be one of the most stubborn threats, and even if victims discover it, removing it is not straightforward. If you employ regular methods, this infection is likely to prevail. Resetting factory settings, uninstalling apps, and stopping browsers all seem to be futile pursuits when it comes to this mysterious threat. Right now, your best bet at removing Com.google.provision is to employ legitimate security software compatible with your Android OS to have the threat eliminated automatically. So, why should you bother?
Some Android threats are more malicious than others, and it appears that Com.google.provision is on the “more malicious” spectrum. And that is not only because it circumvents removal. According to research, this infection can download applications, which means that as long as this malware is active on your device, other threats could be installed without your permission. Needless to say, this is incredibly dangerous because even more dangerous infections could be let in. In most cases, users delete these additional apps, but since the root cause of the problem – Com.google.provision – is not eliminated, the same or other unwanted apps are installed again. The threat itself is operated as a script, and you cannot actually uninstall it via Apps. That being said, the apps downloaded by it must be deleted.
The infiltration of Com.google.provision is still very mysterious. It is possible that users can download it via the Google Play store. Unfortunately, this seemingly reliable source has been found to host all kinds of potentially unwanted programs, adware, and even more dangerous threats. Malware can also be downloaded silently using overlay attacks. In this situation, the threat bypasses security safeguards, and the user is tricked into letting in malware that is hidden behind something else, for example, an image with a bogus “OK” button. Due to this risk, it is important that Android users only use Google Play to download apps. Of course, caution must be exercised when using this source as well. It is also important to patch security vulnerabilities that could permit malware distributors to access the device easier.
Once Com.google.provision slithers in, it intercepts Android device administration rights, which allows it to download applications. Also, the threat might be capable of recording information that could include details regarding the infected device, as well as personally identifiable information. In the worst case scenario, the infection could record the data you enter when logging into your device and certain accounts, which could be used to take over the device and accounts and then impersonate you. This is why infections like Com.google.provision cannot be ignored. If users install security updates whenever they become available, as well as avoid unreliable sources when acquiring apps, they should evade malware. If it is already active, it must be deleted ASAP. We suggest employing a reliable security app to have all threats deleted automatically.

In non-techie terms:
If Com.google.provision has invaded your Android device, you might be at risk because this threat might download additional applications, and they could be malicious. Furthermore, the threat could potentially record non-personally and personally identifiable information. Removing this infection manually is difficult, and resetting factory settings or uninstalling undesirable applications is unlikely to help. The guide above shows how to deactivate apps with administrator rights. It is known that the malicious Com.google.provision has admin privileges, and so this might help you delete malicious apps. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that this will ensure complete removal. We strongly advise installing a trustworthy security app to ensure that your virtual security is protected and that malware is eliminated.
