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.
However, 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, “At 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”
