    Its not a bug per se, rather OnePlus factory mode is triggering Google play protect.

    Has it also disabled your search functionality?

    what sort of dumb suggestion is this?
    factory mode is the root back door that oneplus was collecting data on users.. came to light a few months ago. Google play is warning you of the backdoor. hard reset won't change anything since it is part of the oneplus design.
