    Default Fake app ??

    Greetings,

    I want to ask something about a problem i have. I know this may not be the right place to ask the specific question, but i didn't know who should i ask.
    I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 (4.3).
    I will be honest. So, that time when i visited that adult site, an app downloaded automatically, but DID NOT INSTALL, due to my device being on default settings.(That means, android does not let any apps installed on my device, unless they come from their official store (Google Play Store).
    My anti virus detected a malware, so i deleted that app.
    My question is : Is it possible that this app stole photos, videos, music or any other documents from my device ?
    I repeat : Android blocked its installation. The app was only downloaded, not installed.

    Thank you for taking time to read my message.

    Sincerely, K

    P.S. Forgive me for my english

    Can't say with 100 percent certainty, but you're probably OK.
