HUAWEI App Gallery comes with full-cycle security and protection, including developer real-name verification and four-step review processfor secure app operation. All apps go through a stringent verification test to prevent developers’ apps from malicious activity. It has an age-rating system to create a safe environment for children, filtering out apps that are not suitable for their age range.
App Gallery deploys the highest level of verification to isolate and protect users’ sensitive data and privacy. Personally-sensitive information – such as biometric data – will never be processed outside the Huawei device, giving the user complete control over their personal data. EMUI lets users have control over app user permission. More importantly, all user data is also anonymised and stored locally, corresponding to each user’s region.

The key enabler is HUAWEI HiAI, an open AI capability platform for smart devices, which pools software and hardware resources from different devices and facilitates collaborative, mutually-reinforcing interactions between them.
Quick Apps is an app ecosystem that houses a new type of installation free apps.It provides a good user experience, powerful functions and automatic updates for HTML5 pages, but consumes very little memory space. Despite giving users the same experience as native apps, Quick Apps are written with only 1/5 amount of codes as compared to that of Android apps, therefore taking up less memory space. Users can accommodate more than 2,000 Quick Apps instead of just 20 native apps with just 1GB of space.
Users can even add their favourite Quick Apps to their desktops for convenient access.Quick Apps are used on over 350 million Huawei phones. To date, there are more than 1,700 Quick Apps released globally, a 200% growth year-on-year.
To keep up the pace with 5G, Quick App will be gradually rolled out to more countries and regions, opening China market’s mature Quick App standards and IDE development tools to global developers. All developers across the world are welcomed to publish Quick App to jointly deliver tap-to-use and installation-free experience to users.
