Mitron app pulled down from Google Play Store; here’s why

Remove China Apps’ crosses 50 lakh downloads amid anti China sentiments

This app claims to delete all Chinese apps on your Android phone: Know more

Google has removed the Mitron app from the Play Store.

Does Remove China Apps Really Work? Until last week, Mitron was already in the top 10 spot of the "Top free" apps on Google Play, and earned a rating of 4.7 stars on Google's Play Store.

While testing Remove China Apps on an Oppo Reno 2, the app successfully detected WeChat, Weibo, Taobao and UC Browser as Chinese apps.

The app, which allowed users to post short videos, rapidly gained traction (clocking 5 million downloads in less than a month) by riding on the PM's vocal-for-local call as well as a prevailing anti-China sentiment in the country. For instance, will apps developed by overseas Chinese sound an alarm?

Interestingly, the app developers call it an app developed for educational purposes to help user identify the country of origin of a certain application (s).

The app remains suspended in the Play Store but the makers can appeal to Google if they believe the app meets basic policy standards. Ex: the device has apps like Amazfit, Poco Launcher, Mi Security, and many more which are made by Chinese and this app is not even able to detect that. Does the fact that its founder Eric Yuan, an American citizen born in China, makes Zoom a "China app"?

If you are planning to remove some of the Chinese apps that you might have installed, then you can definitely use this app.

If you have Mitron app installed on your phone we highly recommend uninstalling the app right away and not use it. The app grew quickly on the promise of it's Indian "origin", as noted in numerous reviews of the app. It just depends on the developer and what he is trying to achieve. However, chances are strong that the app has been taken down due to the security issues that indianexpress.com and other media houses reported earlier this week.
