Sad news for UC Browser fans. The tech giant Google has removed the UC Browser app from the Google Play Store for stealing user data without permission. Since the Play Store is the world’s biggest market platform for the Android apps and services, this removal could cause severe problems with the browser champ.
Please note that this removal doesn’t affect the existing users of the browsers and you can still download the app from other sources like apkmirror. But seriously, this decision is going to affect the company very badly. This is not the first time that UC Browser gets caught for data theft. There were so many allegations against the mobile browser giant for the unauthorized data theft. According to the reports, the browser was found sending user data to some Chinese servers. We have approached the company for any comments about this removal. We will update this news once we get a response from them. But the UC Browser Mini is still available.
UC Browser is a mobile browser developed by the Chinese mobile Internet company UCWeb and is owned by Alibaba Group of China. Originally launched in April 2004 as a J2ME-only application, it is available on a number of platforms including Android, BlackBerry OS, iOS, Java ME, Symbian, Windows Phone and Microsoft Windows.
