A few days ago, we reported that Avast Mobile Security is not available from the Play Store pulled from Google Play Store.
Avast had not given a clear reason, why the apps went missing, but only it will fix the issue soon.
Today, one of the moderator’s at Avast’s forums revealed why the apps were removed from the Play Store,
This is because they have been (unilaterally) suspended from the store by Google.
The official reason we have been given is that the way we distribute/recommend the apps is not compliant with Google Play’s policies. Since Saturday, we have been working diligently to get the problem resolved. We expect that the apps will return to Google Play in the next few days.
While Avast has not yet revealed what the exact issue is, I took a closer look at the “recommended apps” in Avast Mobile Security.
The above image shows the apps that Avast Mobile Security displays in the “Featured Apps” section, while the one below show the modules/apps displayed in the “More Tools” section of AMS.
It is likely that Google may have misunderstood that Avast is pushing the apps aggressively, and suspended the two apps. Though I am not a fan of Anti-virus apps on Android, I feel this decision by Google is a bit harsh.
