Dear Partner, We hereby emphasis again that UC Union prohibits any and all misleading/malicious advertising method (s) to procure new users when promoting UC Browser campaigns, such as by using slogan inconsistent with the Product functions, or by using inductive slogan.

This is not the first time UC Browser had landed in a soup over user privacy.

You may have to download an Android APK file if the current version of your app can't be updated from the Google Play Store.

UC Browser has over 500 million downloads, and is a popular alternative to Chrome in India. You also need to consider downloading the latest version.

Reports began swirling in August that claimed UC Browser has a rather nasty habit of stealing sensitive user data which it then sends back to remote servers in China without the user's consent. Unfortunately, nefarious apps can also ask for these permissions which allows them to intercept and steal user data. As part of a widespread investigation into data security, Indian government officials expressed concerns that the UC Browser app continues to collect this data after it has been uninstalled, per a Times of India report.

Google may have issued this warning in an effort to reduce potential security risk. If the developers are unable to convince the search giant within 30 days of receiving the mail, their apps will be removed from the Play Store. The e-mail says that developers "must explain to users how your app is using the 'android.permission.BIND_ACCESSIBILITY_SERVICE' to help users with disabilities use Android devices and apps".
