The sad state of Android: Google removed over 700,000 bad apps last year

“Removing more than 700,000 apps that violated the Google Play store policies is impressive” writes Maren Estrada for bgr.com. That sounds great until you realize that some 700,000 apps with malicious intentions were submitted to the Google Play store in 2017 alone.But let’s look at all the numbers Google presented: In 2017, we took down more than 700,000 apps that violated the Google Play policies, 70% more than the apps taken down in 2016.We have no idea how many apps Apple turned down this year, and how many malicious apps made it into the App Store.The company said it was able to remove some 700,000 fraudulent or malicious apps, both before and after they reached actual consumers.
