Issues with software[edit]

In 2017, the Indian government announced a list of apps, including SHAREit, on Android and iOS that it says intelligence agencies have reported are spyware. Troops were told to delete these apps.[9] Although, the app denies this accusation by releasing an official statement.[10]

To ensure security in offline peer-to-peer app sharing, SHAREit has collaborated with Google to start security metadata integration program. [11] After the metadata integration, all apps shared through SHAREit will be offline screened by Google Play to ensure all apps transferred from one device to another is original and malware free.

In 2019, a computer virus outbreak occurred about after 5 AM in the Philippines.
