- UC Browser was removed from Google Playstore last week
- UCWeb claims that one of the app’s settings was not in line with policy
- UcBrowser is back on Google playstore
- The updated app’s settings are now in line with policy, UCWeb says
UC Browser was removed from Google Play Store early last week. Reports were such that Google removed the application because of some data security concerns. However, UC Web denied the claims and said security wasn’t the reason behind the removal of UC Browser app from Google Play store. It said that UC Browser will be back to Play store in the next 7 days. And that’s exactly what has happened. UC Browser is available on Google Play store yet again — and this time with an updated settings at par with Google’s policy.
WHY WAS UCBROWSER REMOVED FROM Google Playstore ?
The reason for de-listing UC Browser from Google Play Store was because a certain section of the application was not in line with Google’s policy. UC Browser now makes a comeback with an updated setting which goes in line with Google’s policy. “The exact reason for UC Browser’s unavailability on Google Play is because of a certain setting of UC Browser that was not in line with Google’s policy. The reason for the removal has nothing to do with alleged data security breach or malicious promotion,” explains UC Web.
“During the brief absence of UC Browser on Play Store, we continued to meticulously check our technical settings while also witnessing an uninterrupted passion of our users for the product, who looked upon the alternative version, UC Browser Mini, and made it to the top of ‘Free Apps’ category on the Play Store,” says Young Li, Head-International Business Department at Alibaba Mobile Business Group.
To recall, Mike Ross — who apparently works with UC Browser took to twitter and said, “I work for UC Browser, I got mail today morning it said that UC Browser was temporarily removed from play store for 30 days because it used “Misleading” and “Unhealthy” methods of promotion to increase installs.” However, the company now denies Mike’s claims and says, “We would like to state that we have no records of anyone named ‘Mike Ross’ claiming to be working for UC Browser, as mentioned in some reports. The person claiming to be working for UC Browser is in no way associated with the firm nor represents the views of the company.”
“The allegations of misleading and malicious promotions by the said person are completely false and baseless. UC Browser new product package will be back on Google Play next week and, in the interim, users and partners can download the product from our website http://www.ucweb.com,” the company said.
Commenting on the removal of the app from Play store Google in its official statement notes, “Our policies are designed to provide a safe and positive experience for users. That’s why we remove apps from Google Play that violate those policies.” Ucbrowser is back on Google playstore with updated version and amazing features.
