Earlier this week, BuzzFeed News reported that apps from the Play Store of the Chinese company DO Global regularly committed click fraud – by automatically clicking on ads on behalf of users. Google has already removed apps and blocked accounts owned by DO Global, and it seems ES File Manager is involved in the ongoing crackdown.
The ES File Manager is a well-known file manager, although its popularity has waned in recent years, moving from developer to developer. The developer was recently listed as "ES Global" in the Play Store, although the app is actually "Du Global". LinkedIn confirms that you are a sub-division of DO Global. The company is currently involved in the anti-fraud scandal.
The ES File Manager is featured prominently on Du's website. App has been removed, but it may have been one of the apps that violates the Play Store policies. The account under which the application was located under "ES Global" was also suspended.
The ES File Explorer has been involved in other controversies in recent years. The app was delivered at one point with the sketchy & # 39; Charging Boot & # 39; adware (which was later removed), and a pro version was introduced after the free app with bloatware was loaded to the brim. Solid Explorer and Google files are my personal favorites.
