    I surf in lots of Android Forum and literally everyone is in favor of APK Mirror to be one of the most trustworthy APK sources.
    Any one got an idea why it was trusted like that ??
    There are many others too but why APK Mirror attains higher credit.

    it is because all apks are vetted when submitted. In addition, they must include the same google verification key those in the play store have. finally the site is run by those behind android police, a popular tech site similar to android central. I guarantee you that if it had apks with nasties in them, word would get out and you would not see other tech recommend them.

    Ah, I wasn't aware of that -- that is quite reassuring!

    that was pretty clear, but have you ever wondered about origin APK files? I have read their DCMA policy, quite clear and opened. Just don't know how to tell which APK file is origin which one is not ^^

    not sure what you mean by origin but if I understand correctly, it goes back to the verification key, as long as it was the same as the play store, then it is the original and it will be included on the mirror site. as far as where they come from, I don't know about all but a good portion was submitted by the developers of the apk so the DCMA does not apply. but like anything online, you do what you feel comfortable doing.

    How could you know know that APKS from this site "include the same google verification key those in the play store have"??? Any methods to check this?
    Turn off "Install unknown apps" permission. Apks with the key aren't "unknown".

    My reason why I trust it because I've been using it for years with no issues

    I would think that they being created/backed by android police helps in their branding too.
