Hours after Google removed Paytm, app back on Play Store
Paytm and Paytm First Games were taken down by Google from Play Store citing policy violations.
New Delhi: Paytm is back on Google Play store hours after Google removed it for violation of policy. Paytm took to Twitter and wrote, “Update: And we're back!."
Paytm vanished from Google Play Store a few hours after Google’s Suzanne Frey, who is Vice President, Product, Android Security and Privacy, detailed the guidelines in a blog post.
Google India had stated, "When an app violates policies, we notify the developer of the violation and remove the app from Google Play until the developer brings the app into compliance. And in the case where there are repeated policy violations, we may take more serious action which may include terminating Google Play Developer accounts. Our policies are applied and enforced on all developers consistently."
Reacting to this, Paytm has said that the company said that it will issue a statement after an investigation. It added that it is temporarily unavailable on Google Play Store for new downloads or updates. And it will be back very soon. "All your money is completely safe, and you can continue to enjoy your Paytm app as normal," it said.
Paytm and Paytm First Games were removed from Play Store but other apps like Paytm for Business, Paytm mall, Paytm Money, and a few more were still available.
