Possible to filter apps Google Play Store?

L1 Bithead


has anybody tried to filter Applications from the Google Play Store?

I.e. whitelist only a few Apps?

My idea was to use SSL decrypt with google play and to filer for *.apk files, but before I really tried I thought maybe somebody can share some experience with this?

Hello Moritz,

If you need to whitelist apps often, I would go for GlobalProtect Mobile Security Manager.

If this is just a one time thing, you can go ahead with your idea, SSL decrypt, custom signatures, etc.



Hi Guillermo,

thanks for the tip, but does GlobalProtect also work without any configuration changes/additional apps installed on the client device? In our environement we do not control the clients devices.



Moritz, you need the GlobalProtect App (Android or IOS). So, I think this is not a solution for you.


This is actually not accurate. Native IPSec X-Auth will work, although I'm not entirely sure if it's 'supported' per-se. I believe it is though..

So yes, you can connect to GlobalProtect without using the GlobalProtect App in Android and also on iOS using the native IPSec X-Auth.

Perhaps block access to Google Play store, but whitelist URLs to a few specific apps?
