I think you can make malware with App Inventor

With Taifun's file extension, you can make a file deleter that can probably delete personal files (like images, text and more) so yeah check if there is any file deleting blocks :fearful:. image

You didn't read Q.4

In general with linux, you cannot simply delete a folder anyway, you have to remove all the files from it first.

@TIMAI2
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yeah I guess.
I don't use linux oh and i do know that android is linux

I recommend you research and read up before making such statements in the future....

theoreticlly you can use almost everything to do harm...
for example take a shovel to kill someone... so this is the responsibility of the developer...
but as @TIMAI2 already said, I intentionally did not add a delete folder method, because also you as developer could delete your complete internal sdcard by accident while developing...

Ok!

Only below Android 6.
On android 6 and above you need Write permission to create/modify/delete files.

Just in curiosity, is there way to fire the command rm -rf with app inventor(even if we have to make a seperate extension)

yes you can
