Viral App ‘Remove China Apps’ Has Been Removed From The Google Play Store

    Google recently removed an Indian-made app called Remove China Apps from Google Play. As one would expect from the rather straightforward name, the apps is designed to scan a user’s smartphone for an Chinese-made apps and delete them from the device.

    The app was developed by an Indian startup known as OneTouch AppLabs and was made available for download in May. In just two weeks, the app was downloaded and installed on Android devices a total of five million times, and included apps such as TikTok in its list.

    Remove China Apps

    The app gained a fair bit of popularity in India mainly due to the recent anti-China sentiment from many Indian citizens. This comes about as a result of tension over a Himalayan border dispute, and the mass boycotting of Chinese products in India.

    To be fair, ‘Remove China Apps’ doesn’t automatically delete all Chinese-made applications, and users are presented with the option of manually deleting the apps. However, it still pushes users towards deleting third-party apps, and this leads to a violation of the Play Store’s policies.
