The web giant has just taken new measures to strengthen the security and integrity of Internet users on its platforms. Among them, one aims in particular to prohibit tariffed relations.
From September, dating apps for “sugar daddies” will no longer be allowed on the Google PlayStore. If the latter enjoyed until now a certain tolerance, the American company now considers that they are promoting tariffed relations. By putting sugar daddies (rich mature men) in contact with sugar babies (generally young women wishing to be maintained), this type of application does not never explicitly mentions sex, let alone their pricing. However, Mountain View now believes that this is a barely diverted form of “Paid sex”.
Google toughens its policy
Clean up developers
Another drastic measure taken by Google, the company will soon reserve the right to delete developer accounts that have been inactive for more than a year. Exceptions will apply if they are the source of applications with in-app purchases or high traffic. In any case, Google has warned that it will notify developers 70, 30, and 7 days before the fateful date.
