Banning dangerous apps
At Google I/O this year, the company said that there are currently 3 billion active Android devices. Google wants to keep users safe by banning dangerous apps. The apps that have been banned are used to steal the personal information and money of the users.
These apps steal Login ID and personal information
Through the Login with Facebook button, it is easy for users to instantly authenticate any web service or app. With this, they can use the service without creating another username and password. Apps like Spotify and Tinder also use this service.
