    Hey,
    Does anybody else have the problem with Google play protect and the factory mode?
    Should I deinstall the factory mode app?

    It's a warning .
    Any app that doesn't get complied with Google standards are forewarned.
    But the factory mode app is by oneplus and earlier known by the name Engineering Mode .
    So just ignore the warning.

    Just ignore it.
    That app is from OnePlus and earlier known as Engineering Mode.

    It's part of the information drain that oneplus did with our info before being caught out.
