Google has banned UC Browser from its Play Store

Google has removed the biggest search engine app from its Play Store. After Google's decision, people may have a lot of trouble as Google has removed the most used app UC Browser from its Play Store. UC Browser is the browser app of China's largest company Alibaba. According to a report by Google, UC Browser has completed the 50 million downloads on Google last week and is India's sixth most downloaded Android app.
 
It is worth noting that UC Browser mini is still available on Play Store, it has not been removed from Google. According to the media reports, Google has removed UC Browser from Playstore due to the Miss Leading promotion. Some reports have also claimed that the app is banned from playstore for 30 days only and it will be restored.
 
In a conference, a top IT official said that "there are complaints against UC Browser that it sends the mobile data of Indian users to the server stored in China.
 
If charges against UC Browser are proved then this app can be banned in the country. UC Browser is a part of Alibaba's mobile business group. Alibaba has made huge investments in the app like paytm in India. Apart from this, he has invested big money in Snapdeal too.
