    You can either go through Play Store > Play Protect
    Or
    Settings > Google > Security > Google Play Protect

    Scan again and disable when they prompt for action

    Seems it wasn't my day haven't found it so far, even Google it and everything but now with your help I was able to deinstall it.

    Really thanks for helping me.

    Hello,
    this is happening right now on every OnePlus 3. Every OP3 owner I know has asked me about it (since I'm kinda the IT support guy in our surroundings).
    Personally, I've made a backup of this app with Titanium Backup and afterwards I've uninstalled it.

    Regards,
    HP

    Also appeared. Now it is disabled. Would be good to understand the reason behind this app and what (if any) is the risk... I believe it is only the phones with the latest beta (22/13), correct?

    Its a spare input and output, if the OP phone has spare pins in their hardware, the access to the Kernel which is the GPIO switch can activate this spare hardware, this is potentially dangerous since it can be used for by bad elements. I think Oneplus must issue an explanation to clarify this. Good job Google in detecting this!

    Why wouldn't OnePlus clarify what that switch is needed for?? You can't just add something like that and expect everyone to trust you

    I also got this warning on my OP3 on the Open Beta 22. What the heck is this supposed to be?

    Same,.... I'm just going to ignore it personally.

    If they come out with something then so be it... otherwise I haven't had an issue yet, even though it is all the sudden "dangerous" for my OP3.

    I think it's an interference between the real use of the app and a "rule" Google's safety check has. I've only had this message on my Samsung devices when I had SEPolicy switcher installed.
    My thoughts on this: It's a deep-level system app that should be whitelisted by Google but actually isn't and thereby it's treated like 3rd party apps such as SEPolicy Switcher and alike. But please don't nail me down on that

    I have the same problem here, with stable Android/OxygenOs builds. I hope someone from oneplus will tell us something soon.

    Don't panic! This app was always here, but Google recently launcher the Google Play Store Protect and only now it detected this app as harmful. Definitely OnePlus should issue a statement regarding this.
