Google Might Remove Millions Of Apps From The Play Store
Search giant Google will remove millions of apps of its Play Store, given the fact that all of these are the ones with questionable privacy policies that could easily affect the users. Naturally, what might be seen as a really controversial move from the tech company, is actually made to solve one of the main issues that people are suffering right now.
Apparently these apps are usually called zombie apps, and are characterized for taking the form of a knock-off of a sloppy utility or popular game that don't have anything to do with its description, and they strategically turn up alongside legitimate apps, which make them really hard to notice if you´re not paying too much attention of reviews while you shop. As you might see, Google is getting rid of really annoying apps.
Google´s Stance On The Zombie Apps Is Really Serious
Actually, Google gave the developers the chance of complying with this request until March 15, at which point the search giant will limit visibility of the zombie apps, or just remove them altogether. This would mean the death of millions of apps that haven't seen any sign of development in many years, showing Google´s strong stance on this particular issue, given the fact that the Play Store is littered with apps of questionable repute, and some of them have been under Google´s radar for too long.
