I recently installed a third party application and never looked at its name or icon it came up with in the screen. But, after installation, I saw a notification from an app, that says
Google Play Services had been updated.
This made me nervous that, the third party app I use was actually got updated through google play services. I have checked in Settings -> Apps -> Google play services, and at the bottom it says where it was installed and it says google play store.
Does this bit of information only mean when it was originally installed or does it also account for updates. For example, if I originally installed an app from the play store but then side loaded an update would it say installed through the play store or via a third party.
I also use solid explorer and checked the SHA1 hash of the app which matched with the hash I found online for that specific version of google play services.
Am I safe? And if so, does Google play services usually update in the background due to being prompted to check when you are updating other apps or is it just a coincidence.
Thanks. Sorry for the wall of text but I want to be sure i'm safe.
