Users can report apps they think are abusive to Google. The increase in notifications that privacy policy has been misused in some apps recently has prompted Google. The company has managed to get rid of some of such practices, taking into account the incoming notifications.

These kinds of applications, which generally disturb users with irrelevant ads, can be eliminated from the censorship layer by disabling malicious ads in the source code. It is also worth noting that these applications usually come from a single developer team.

Security company White Ops reported it to Google after discovering malicious apps and suggested the removal of these apps. The majority of practices determined by the company; beauty, selfie and filter applications.
