Whenever we talk about the mobile web browser, Google Chrome, Opera Mini, UC Browser could be our first choice. However, recently we have seen popular mobile web browser, UC Browser has mysteriously disappeared from Google Play Store.
Mike Ross who works with UC Browser had shared a tweet in which he mentioned the reason why the app was taken down from Google Play Store. He twitted “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”
After the removal, it’s said that UC browser will be back to Google Play Store within 7 days. And that’s exactly what had happened. UC Browser app is now available on Google Play Store. However, this time the app was available with an updated settings at par with Google’s policy.
UC Web explains the exact reason why it was taken down from Google Play Store. UC Web explained “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,”
Young Li, Head-International Business Department at Alibaba Mobile Business Group said “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”
