This Is Why Google Removed “Remove China Apps” From Play Store

Updated on 8 June, 2020 at 9:08 am By

Google Play Store citing policy violations took down an app recently that had been downloaded by at least 5 million Indian Android users. The app, Remove China Apps, made headlines over the last few days promising to recognize and uninstall popular Chinese apps like TikTok, ShareIt, Helo, and CamScanner, as well as some lesser-known ones. It came close on the heels of yet another popular app, TikTok’s clone Mitron, being removed from Play Store for similar violations.

Google responded on the matter and stated that they recently, also, suspended a number of apps for violating the policy wherein they do not allow an app that “encourages or incentivizes users into removing or disabling third-party apps or modifying device settings or features unless it is part of a verifiable security service”.

 

The blog posted by Google further said, “This is a longstanding rule designed to ensure a healthy, competitive environment where developers can succeed based upon design and innovation. When apps are allowed to specifically target other apps, it can lead to behavior that we believe is not in the best interest of our community of developers and consumers. We’ve enforced this policy against other apps in many countries consistently in the past – just as we did here.”

Remove China Apps, as the name suggests was an application that allowed users to delete all the applications on their phones that were developed in China by scanning the user’s device and listing the apps with China as their origin.

 

Not much is known about the app except that it had been developed by a firm named OneTouch AppLabs.
