Applications with abusive permissions will be removed from the Play Store


Google has taken action on the matter and is preparing to eliminate hundreds of thousands of applications with abusive permissions that are not necessary

In recent years, privacy has become very important (especially since the Facebook scandals) and Google It doesn't want to be less. They are taking action on the matter and today it is the turn of the applications of the Play Store, will eliminate those that use permissions in an abusive way that are not necessary for them to work correctly.

Applications with permissions to read SMS and calls will be removed from the Play Store

The reason is very simple, Google does not want applications to have access to these permissions "by the face" unless strictly necessary, such as a messaging application or similar. And the way they have chosen has been to remove root applications without going around.

Even so developers have two options if they are listed of the elect. Keep in mind that this mass removal will take place in the coming weeks:

  • Upload a new version of the application with access to SMS permissions and calls removed > of the internal code.
  • Complete a permission statement before March 9. Then you must upload a new version with these permissions retained and wait for Google to accept or not their use .

There may also be more impediments when uploading new applications to the Play Store. Without a doubt it is something that should be taken into account if you are an app developer and it is a bit heavy. At least users are the beneficiaries for once clearly.

What do you think of this drastic Google decision? Do you think it is a step in the right direction or that much remains to be done? Do not leave without leaving your opinion in the comments section.
