UC Browser crosses 100 million Monthly Active Users in India

However, it is important to note that the stripped down version of UC Browser-the UC Browser Mini app- is still there. Even though the UC Browser app has been removed from the Play Store, the app is still available on Apple App Store. At present, there is no official confirmation or announcement regarding this from both Google and UCWeb. But, before doing that, you need to download the Google Play Store APK and install it in your device.

In addition to this, previous reports have also suggested that UC Browser has been suspected of sending user data to China. Android Police founder received a mail from an affiliate for UC Union, the parent company of UC Browser criticizing "any and all misleading/malicious advertising method (s) to procure new users when promoting UC Browser campaigns, such as by using slogan inconsistent with Product functions, or by using inductive slogan".

The new Google Home app is completely redesigned and is much more easier to use than before.

However, after the allegations UCWeb had denied any wrongdoing, stating that it was a standard industry practice to collect user information and data in necessary conditions to provide users with local services.

UC Browser has been a prevalent name since the advent of smartphones which stretches back to the days of Symbian operating system.

Researchers at security firm ESET have revealed the discovery of a family of apps hiding the Android/TrojanDropper.Agent.BKY malware within the Google Play Store.

"In all the cases we investigated, the final payload was a mobile banking trojan", said ESET.

This is a method that developers have been using for quite some time now, and while it technically works, it does create for vulnerabilities that Google doesn't like to see.

UC Browser is developed by UCWeb, the company which is owned by China's Alibaba Group. Reports from 2016 quoted these figures to be somewhere over 420 million users.

A Twitter user named Mike Ross, who works with UC Browser posted a tweet explaining the app was taken down for a similar reason.

The infected apps identified by Dr.Web include "Sweet Bakery Match 3 - Swap and Connect 3 Cakes", version 3.0; "Bible Trivia", version 1.8 "Bible Trivia - FREE", version 2.4; "Fast Cleaner light", version 1.0; "Make Money", version 1.9; "Band Game: Piano, Guitar, Drum", version 1.47; "Cartoon Racoon Match 3 - Robbery Gem Puzzle 2017", version 1.0.2; "Easy Backup & Restore", version 4.9.15; and "Learn to Sing", version 1.2.
