In a current post on the Android Developers blog, the organization gloats that it expelled a record number of noxious applications from the official Google Play store, more than 700,000 apps that violated the Google Play policies, 70% more than the apps taken down in 2016.


Google says it is improving at proactively shielding Android clients from the developing hazard of portable malware:

        "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. Not only did we remove more bad apps, we were able to identify and action against them earlier. In fact, 99% of apps with abusive contents were identified and rejected before anyone could install them. This was possible through significant improvements in our ability to detect abuse - such as impersonation, inappropriate content, or malware - through new machine learning models and techniques."

Endeavoring to betray clients by imitating well known applications is a standout amongst the most well-known infringement. Well known titles get a ton of look activity for specific watchwords, so the terrible performers endeavor to hoard introduces utilizing such movement.

They do this by endeavoring to sneak in mimicking applications to the Play Store through beguiling strategies, for example, utilizing confusable unicode characters or covering up imitating application symbols in an alternate area.

While little in volume, PHAs represent a danger to Android clients and they put intensely in keeping them out of the Play Store.

Finding these awful applications is non-trifling as the pernicious engineers go the additional mile to make their application look as genuine as could be expected under the circumstances, however with the dispatch of Google Play Protect in 2017, the yearly PHA introduces rates on Google Play was diminished by 50 percent year over year.
