    • downloads: automatically sent to associated app (media scanner) when downloaded


  • concern is that there is no way for someone to turn on "prompt before opening" in case of malware in the wild
    • Possibility that this could trigger system compromise due to code flaws we don't control (e.g., android's image decoding libraries)
