UC Browser App not on Google PlayStore – What might be the Possible Reasons?

UC Browser is one of the most widely used mobile browsers by Android users across the world due to several features it claims, including faster loading speed, ad-free experience etc. We believe, you must have used UC Browser once at-least.

UC Browser app not on google playstore reasonsHowever, if you have been planning to use this browser, here is a news alert for you that UC Browser’s main version is no longer available for download on Google Playstore. Yes, you hear it right – The famous app has been either pulled off by UC due to unknown issues or has been removed from the playstore.

Has UC Browser been removed due to recent headlines of data leaking?

Well, if you don’t know, UC Browser has recently been in the news for being under the scanner of Indian Government for leaking data of users to China servers. Following this news, we had also stopped publishing any promotional campaigns of UC Browser on Dealnloot, as well.

So, is it possible that the unavailability of UC App on Google Playstore and data tempering issue interlinked with each other?

Earlier, UC Spokesperson had said, “AtΒ UC Web, we take security and privacy very seriously and work hard to comply with local regulations of each region we operate in. We have strong measures in place to encrypt the data while we transmit it.” He also said that they have not received any notice from the government”

UC Mini App Available on PlayStore

Although, we do not advise our users to use UC Browser as sacrificing potential data threat against a little better browsing experience is not right.

However, we would like to inform you that the mini version of this app, whoch goes by the name of “UC Mini” is still present in PlayStore and can be downloaded by the users who want to stick to UC Browser to access their favorite websites.

Your valuable thoughts?

We hope, this tiny article has been handy for you. However, we would love to hear your thoughts –

    • Your guess on what went wrong
    • Is it just a temporary issue and UC Browser will be back on playstore tomorrow?
    • Do you support UC Browser or want everyone to boycott it?
    • Shall we publish such articles more often?

Good Night Dealnlooters!
