This detection from the F-Secure Security Cloud identifies Android apps with code or behavior similar to Trojan:Android/FakeAngry. This known threat silently gathers information from the device and forwards the details to a remote location.
Once the scan is complete, the F-Secure security product will ask if you want to uninstall the file, move it to the quarantine or keep it installed on your device.
A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:
Check for the latest database updates
First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest detection database updates, then try scanning the file again.
Submit a sample
After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.
NOTE If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
Exclude a file from further scanning
If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.
Note You need administrative rights to change the settings.

F-Secure's Security Cloud is an online service that tracks the security reputation of common programs, files and websites. If a questionable program or file is found during a scan, your F-Secure security product will send a query to the Security Cloud to get its most recent reputation rating. The product will then use that information (and if needed, further analysis) to choose whether to block, quarantine or remove the program or file.
The Security Cloud rating for the identified app indicates that it has code or behavior similar to Trojan:Android/FakeAngry.
FakeAngry variants are usually copies of a popular program that have been recompile or trojanized to include malicious components. These altered apps are then redistributed, either under their original branding or with new names.
Once installed, the app gathers the following information from the compromised device and forwards the details to a remote location:
