Scan and delete potential Chinese apps in your phone
Remove China Apps is a free utility tool application that immediately accumulated millions of downloads from users when released in Play Store by India-based startup company named OneTouch AppLabs. As the name suggests, it gives you the capability to delete all applications on your mobile devices that are made in China by scanning the user’s device and listing the apps with China as their origin. Nonetheless, the decision still lies in your hand as it provides you the options whether to keep or remove China-based applications in your device.
Promotes the country’s ‘Self-Reliant India’ campaign
Remove China Apps is created with huge inspiration coming from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s campaign of Self Reliant India. It easily gained popularity especially in the Indian market because of a growing anti-China sentiment among legions of citizens as the tension between the world’s two most populous nations has escalated in recent days over a Himalayan border dispute. This tool scans and detects apps formulated by Chinese firms such as ByteDance’s TikTok and Alibaba’s UC Browser. In fact, these gigantic applications consider India as one of their major markets.
However, much to the dislike of the Indian citizens, the phenomenal app was removed in Google Play Store as it is claimed to have violated its Deceptive Behavior Policy which prohibits an application from encouraging or misleading users into “removing or disabling third-party apps.” Before its removal from the store, the utility app had amassed more than 5 million downloads since late May of its release and quickly became one of the trending applications in the Play Store.
Luckily for those who downloaded and installed the app as soon as it got released because you will still be able to use it today without any problems. Unfortunately, for those who are still interested in getting the app, you’ll have a hard time finding an alternative as the developer didn’t release an official APK file. Thus, downloading the Remove China Apps APK files you are lately seeing online has the possibility of putting your device at risk.
Widely loved by Indian natives
Despite Google’s removal from the play store, the success of this application can’t cast any doubts especially with the viable sentiments from Indian users to boycott Chinese products. This app will also be an essential instrument in making the ‘Self-Reliant India’ campaign successful. Not only that it will encourage Indian people to patronize the apps made by and on their own homeland.
