If your device runs on Android OS, then there are high chances that you’ve heard about APK files. An APK file on Android is like an installation “.exe.” file on Windows OS.
Being able to install an APK file comes with many benefits. First of all, there are some applications that are not available on the Google Play Store, because they are locked for a specific region. Well, you can just download the installation (APK) file of that game/application from the internet and manually install it on your Android handset without any problems.
In order to be able to install an APK file on your Android device, which you download from a third party location, you will need to enable the “Unknown Sources” option from your device’s Settings->Security. Once this option is enabled, you will be able to install any APK file that you find on the internet, as long as it works on the Android OS version that your mobile device runs on.
