Mitron Application Revoked From the Google Play Store for Violating Spam and Repeated Content Policies| Instant News

The Mitron application, an alternative to TikTok that quickly garnered a lot of attention, has now been removed from the Google Play Store. This application grows quickly on the promise of ‘Indian origin’, as noted in many app reviews. However, it was later discovered that the application was a rebranded version of another application made by a developer from Pakistan. Now, Mitron has been withdrawn from the Google Play store and according to reports, Google deleted it because it violates the ‘spam and minimum functionality’ policy.

Google Policy stating that copying content from other applications without making original changes or adding value to them is a violation. “We do not allow applications that only provide the same experience as other applications that already exist on Google Play. Applications must provide value to users through the creation of unique content or services, “the policy reads. It also states that applications must provide “a level of basic functionality and a respectable user experience.”

After the question about the true origin of the Mitron application is raised, it is found that the whole application source code purchased from the Pakistani software development company, Qboxus, for $ 34 (around Rs. 2,500). CEO of Qboxus Irfan Sheikh be told News18, “There is no problem with what the developer has done. He paid for the script and used it, which was fine. But, the problem is that people call it an application made in India, which isn’t right especially because they haven’t made changes ”.

Following this development, CNBC-TV18 reported that Google red flag the application and suspend it, stating that it violates Google’s spam policy and minimum functionality policy, according to the report.

As previously reported by Gadget 360, this application has raised questions about security and privacy. The developer’s website leads to a blank page, and there is no privacy policy. Security analyst too found vulnerabilities in applications that can make your account open for expropriation. On May 30, the application added a privacy policy under the CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) privacy policy that allows users to “control their data or delete it or ask application vendors not to sell user data,” but again, limited information.
