Google Blocks 1.43 Million Malicious Apps, Bans 173,000 Bad Accounts in 2022
The Hacker News
Google disclosed that its improved security features and app review processes helped it block 1.43 million bad apps from being published to the Play Store in 2022.
In addition, the company said it banned 173,000 bad accounts and fended off over $2 billion in fraudulent and abusive transactions through developer-facing features like Voided Purchases API, Obfuscated Account ID, and Play Integrity API.
The addition of identity verification methods such as phone number and email address to join Google Play contributed to a reduction in accounts used to publish apps that go against its policies, Google pointed out.
