Google is not relenting one bit in its battle to beef the Play Store up with as much security as we can get. This Google pursues by regularly waging war on fraud as well as spam installs. In this war, there is no armistice and in the latest aggression Google is rolling out a fresh update to its Play Store app. This is aimed at introducing enhanced detection as well as improved filtering systems.
“From time to time, we observe instances of developers attempting to manipulate the placement of their apps through illegitimate means like fraudulent installs, fake reviews, and incentivized ratings,” Google announced via a blog post.
“These attempts not only violate the Google Play Developer Policy, but also harm our community of developers by hindering their chances of being discovered or recommended through our systems.”
So with what we have on ground with the changes being rolled out, Google is aiming at upping its combat capacity against spam installs as it hopes it is now better armed at detecting as well as filtering any install carried out with the aim of teetering the placement of an app on Google Play. There is now the stern warning that developers who engage in this anomaly will have their apps withdrawn quickly from the store.
