- Why does F-Droid require "Unknown Sources" to install apps by default?
Because a regular Android app cannot act as a package manager on its own. To do so, it would require system privileges (see below), similar to what Google Play does.
- Can I avoid enabling "Unknown Sources" by installing F-Droid as a privileged system app?
This used to be the case, but no longer is. Now the Privileged Extension is the one that should be placed in the system. It can be bundled with a ROM or installed via a zip.
