Was it the same apk file which you failed to download via different web browsers?
Try another one from different source.

Did you try downloading different APK files from different websites?
Maybe you have anti-virus or something blocking app installed on your device which blocks downloading .apk files through internet.

I think you should use apk downloader at this Gamehot.games website. This is the best place and used by many users to download the apk file for free.

maybe the apk is corrupted, or it has a virus. Even without an anti-virus android have a security system that handles that

When you will download apk file outside of Play Store, then you have to change a little bit of your setting. If you don't know don't worry. In the below, I shared the trick...

  1. Go to your phone setting.
  2. Find out the unknown source option
  3. Enable it
  4. For downloading apk, go AppsGag website

All done, hope now you can easily download any apk file to your SD Card or Internal Storage...

Hi. If you're a more casual APK downloader then a Chrome extension is probably not really necessary. Instead, you can just visit a dedicated site for generating APK download links whenever you need to.

Go to the Play Store and find the app you want to download.
Copy the app's URL address from the browser's address bar.
Next, go to a site like Apkssl APK Downloader (Apkssl also has a Chrome/Firefox extension) and paste the app package name (or the whole Google Play URL if you're lazy) in the box at the top of the page.

I think the problem may lie in the APK file you downloaded. Try downloading the file from other sources like apktovi or choilieng. I can normally download and install APK files from those sites without facing any errors.
