Cheetah Mobile Dismisses Importance of Google Removing Its App

If you were, for some reason, hoping to download CM File Manager or Kika Keyboard, I have some bad news.

Google Play has announced its Best Apps of 2018, a list that includes a good number of games released on the mobile platform this year. A report last week claimed that Cheetah Mobile and an associated company called Kika Tech were engaged in some shady advertising practices, and now Google has responded.

The search giant removed the CM File Manager and Kika Keyboard apps for "deceptive and malicious behavior", according to Buzzfeed. "If an app violates our policies, we take action", it said in a statement.

The company found that these two apps contained code which can be used to execute ad fraud through various techniques.

Qualcomm has no plans to revive NXP deal
Qualcomm has a large presence in China so they were not left with any real options except to cancel the deal. The deal, which was originally announced in 2016, was approved by eight other regulators around the world.

It was reported last week that eight apps on Google Play with more than two billion downloads have been exploiting user permissions to steal "millions of dollars".

Though the two companies can appeal the decision by Google, the two companies are now also been removed from its AdMob mobile advertising network. This level of control seems more important now than ever so let's dive into what ... The developer Cheetah Mobile has defended itself by saying that it has no control over the companies that provide the advertisements included in the app, but it is still hard to believe that it did not know anything, given that it is clear how it could make a considerable profit from the situation.

CM Manager isn't the only Cheetah app removed from the Play Store either, as Battery Doctor and CM Launcher were apparently removed in the wake of the original story.
