How to Install Apk/Mod Apk File on Your PC/Mobile

The question of how to install apk/mod apk file arises when someone is interested to use apk file or modded version of any file because mobile security didn’t allow apk file installation directly until you allow them. First of all, let me explain what is apk?

What is Apk?

For better understanding let’s explain it through an example, as we know that there is a package format called .zip. We all know that whenever we click or extract a zip file the original file is split into different components from which this specific file is made.

Same is the case in Apk, when someone develops an app or game by combining thousands of components and elements of the app/game, then that single combined file is called apk file. And when we try to install it then the apk file split into its components so that the game or app should run.

APK Stand For?

Apk stands for Android Application Package.
