UC Browser no longer available on the Google Play Store

Hundreds of Android apps might be removed from the Google Play ...

Android's Accessibility Services are created to help developers make their apps easier to use for those with disabilities.

News broke over the weekend that Google was instructing Android developers that don't use Accessibility Services for its intended objective to strip away that functionality from apps. The Accessibility Services API can be used to read data from other apps if the user grants specific permissions. While it may be possible for some developers to recreate key features of their apps in a way that avoids the improper use of accessibility services, they will undoubtedly struggle to do so within such a tight window of time.

The apps cited by Trend Micro have been removed from the Play Store.

Endo International plc (ENDP), Newell Brands Inc. (NWL)
The company provided EPS guidance of $3.35-3.65 for the period, compared to the Thomson Reuters consensus EPS estimate of $3.52. Analysts expect Endo International PLC to post earnings of $0.81 per share and revenue of $862.47 million for the quarter.

Google is aiming to take down the malicious apps from Play Store with this move. On first use, the app reports that it requires Accessibility permissions to operate. Well, stick around because we are going answer that question by comparing these two premium Android apps against each other. He also said that they have not received any notice from the government. For instance the "Building Accessibility Services" page suggests developers make apps for users "who may temporarily be unable to fully interact with a device". The email also informs that such repeated violations may lead to a termination of the developer's account or even related Google accounts as well. For example, LastPass uses accessibility services to enable their app's password auto-fill functionality. The Centre for Development of Advanced Computing in Hyderabad is investigating the matter.

With the accessibility API, apps can access lots of powerful commands that let them function a bit like a system-level app, and the legitimate, non-accessibility uses are nearly endless.

DO NOT use the Malicious Promotion method (s) or STOP such behavior immediately if you are acting so.
