Note: These instructions were taken using the Firefox mobile browser and an HTC Droid DNA device, your steps may be slightly different depending on your chosen mobile browser, device, and Android version.
If you haven’t installed other apps from a store other than Google Play, you may get a message saying your phone is blocking the install.
