Can downloading an Apk file on pc give it virus and if so can my anti-virus (Bitdefender) detect the virus?

I came across this site that has an Apk file that is supposed to be downloaded on a phone to open. It seems this app is a platform with Asian adult videos. I have not downloaded it on my phone, but on my laptop to make sure it’s safe.

I used virustotal to scan the file and turns out 11/85 engines detected something. I deleted the file from my laptop straight after and although they could be false positive, I scanned my laptop with Bitdefender, but nothing was detected after the scan.

Can I get a virus on my laptop from an Apk file?



No, APK files cannot run on your computer, and disable Install unknown apps on your phone, never install APK’s, especially from shady porn sites.
