    Banned from Google Play Store: DO Global (500M+ downloads)
    DO Global has more than 500 million downloads for their Android Apps on the Google Play Store and have recently been banned by Google. The company - which has ties to China's Baidu - has been accused of ad fraud among other violations of Android's Terms of Service.

    What exactly where they doing? And if a company of this magnitude was breaking the TOS, how many smaller devs are getting away with similar things?

    They got banned for advertising fraud they placed code in their ads that when a user clicks on it, It doesnt take the user to what the ad says or does nothing so it violated it, i bought the prosnd the pro had no ads, but wasthe best file manager, i bought the pro because before they added ads it was perfect now it just runs like garbage
