What Are Third Party Applications? How to install in android? Beneficial or not?

Your friend has a great Android App. Which you took in your Android Phone.
And you quickly started installing it on your phone. As soon as you tapped to
install the app, a message like this came in front of you.

This happens often. When we try to install an Android App taken from an
Unknown Source (Third Party Source). Then our phone shows us this
message. Because Android Phone does not install any Third Party Apps
without your permission. And blocks the installation of Third Party Apps.

Now in your opinion, the same question must be going on: why is the
installation of Third Party Apps blocked? And How Can I Install Download
Apps From An Unknown Source In My Android Phone? Before knowing the
answers to these questions, we need to know one thing: why do these third
party apps remain blocked on Android phones?

Why Are Third Party Apps Blocked in Android Phones?

There is already an App Store for installing apps in Android Phone, which is
named Play Store. Most Android users install apps for themselves from here.
Because this App Store is Android’s own App Store. The app which is not in
this app store is considered as a third party app or Unknown Source App.

Actually, when we use an Android Phone for the first time, then we have to
add a Google Account to it. And the Play Store is also made by Google itself.
Therefore, when we install any app from the play store, those apps get
installed directly. But, when we install Download Apps from any other Android
App Market, then our Android Phone considers it as Unknown Source. And
does not consider the apps downloaded from here as secure. All this is done
for our security.

It was about why third party applications are blocked on Android phones. But, now
we go ahead and know how to unblock third party applications? And how to install
Download Apps from Unknown Source?
