  1. I’ve used YouTube Vanced for a long time but suddenly my my Note 8 is screaming that it’s malware…..kinda worried now.

    • You probably would be using the Chinese Galaxy Note 8, the one having Smart Manager China pre-installed, am I right? Anyway, I’ve seen Smart Manger China blacklisting the YT Vanced as malware, while ironically the regular Smart Manager doesn’t.
