How to Turn Off Xiaomi Security Scan for APK Installs

Dealing with Xiaomi’s MIUI can be a mixed bag. Sure, it’s packed with features, but it also includes some less welcomed ones like the security scan when you try to install APKs from outside the Play Store. On other Android phones, you might just flip a switch once to allow installs from unknown sources, but Xiaomi likes to do a bit more, checking for viruses and other risks.

For people who know their APK sources are safe, this can feel unnecessary and slow. If you want to skip these extra steps, here’s how you can turn off Xiaomi’s security scans.

Steps to Bypass Xiaomi’s Security Scan (Disable)

Root Your Device

To get started, your phone needs to be rooted. This lets you customize things normally out of reach but can complicate things like passing SafetyNet checks.
