Add an app or signing certificate to the approved app list

To prevent malware scanning for a specific 
Android
 app or for all apps that use a developer’s signing certificate, you can add the app or certificate to the approved app list. If you added an app or certificate to the approved app list for malware detection for internally deployed Android apps, those apps are exempt from malware scanning on 
Android
 devices.
You cannot add apps or app certificates that have already been added to the restricted app list.
