Google bans Android apps that sneak in ads on your phone's lockscreen

Google bans Android apps that sneak in ads on your phone's lockscreen

In conference, Dhwani Shah, product manager of Google's Next Billion Users team, said that the objective of this application is to help people save up to 30% of their mobile data consumption because in many countries there is still confusion of the data administration registered by their devices and the one that they receive from their service providers.

Now as we know 2017 is coming to an end, Google has shared a list of apps on Play Store.

"Those living on Wi-Fi or with large data plans may not notice, but for many users around the world data is like money to them so they budget it".

The first application launched by Google for its next billion users is called Datally, and it is available today in Spanish for Android devices. The app then analyses the problem, provides you with a step-by-step guide to solve it, offers educational video and can crowdsource help from other users. Even apps installed from outside the Google Play Store have to follow Google's new requirements, or else a warning will pop up to remind users that an app is trying to collect data from them without permission.

Understand your data. See your usage on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis and get personalized recommendations for how you can save more. Apps that save and disseminate such personal data that doesn't need to be collected must explain to the user how the data is going to be used. You can also block data with one tap if an app's data usage gets out of control. Once you're done, don't forget to rate the network quality to help other users. We say so as Google appears to have made a decision to take a stand against the advertisements on the lock screen.

This new policy of Google that bans apps displaying ads on the lock screen is great for the Android users as it will not only free them from the annoying ads but also improve the security.
