Just after reports surfaced regarding malicious developers misusing Apple’s enterprise app policies to deliver inappropriate apps into the wild, Google Play noted down its own measures in taking care of these rogue apps and developers in the last year.
In its official blog, Google Play remarks that in 2018, the service developed its abuse detection technologies and raised its team to fight against bad actors.
The company established a series of new policies to protect the users from abuse, detect and eliminate malicious developers, and stop more malicious apps entering the Google Play Store.
The amount of rejected app submissions risen by more than 55 percent, while app suspensions have risen by more than 66 percent.
Google Play applied the stricter crackdown on the mix of automated protections and human review processes. The Google Play Protect system scans over 50 billion apps on users’ devices each day to assure no bad app makes its way onto the device.
