However, just in case if you're over dependent on applications, well, hard days are approaching for you as Google Play Store is now planning to remove a vast range of applications. The reason behind the decision can be the rising number of fake apps and malicious activities.

This being said, latest reports suggest that Google has sent out a notice to various app developers worldwide, informing them that their app may vanish from the Play Store at any time.

To highlight more on the instance, the warning was sent to the developers who failed to meet the terms of Google's user data policy and whose applications don't have a valid privacy policy.
