So, what is AltStore? AltStore is an alternative app store for non-jailbroken devices. Unlike other unofficial app stores today, AltStore does not rely on enterprise certificates, which Apple has been cracking down on more and more recently. Instead, it relies on a lesser known developer feature that allows you to use your Apple ID to install apps you’ve developed yourself with Xcode, Apple’s development toolkit. This is intended for people who might otherwise be unable to purchase a $99/yr developer account themselves (such as students) — but as it turns out there’s no technical reason why it’s limited to just apps installed from Xcode.

You can know more about the AltStore from the AltStore's developers' blog.

Apps downloaded from this site might be prone to hacking? Anyone gave a thought about this?

I use apple for my primary sim only for overcoming privacy and security concern which Google doesn't provide. So I am not going for jailbreaking nor this new 3rd party store. Then there won't be any different between iOs and Android.

Off topic : I take a step further. I use a non smart phone for hacking and stuff. Because of this I have to use my mom's UPI.
