Google Play Cracks Down on Lock-Screen Ads
Yeah, Those annoying ads that ruin your experience may be coming to an end.
The Google Play Store has started to ban apps from introducing pesky ads that can appear over your phone's lock screen.
As Android Police first reported, Google's official app store now mentionsthe restriction in its developer policies on deceptive and disruptive ads.
Google hasn't explained the reasoning behind the restriction, but it'll probably be welcomed by most. Plenty of free apps, including file managers, photo editors, weather widgets, and security software, used the monetization tactic to generate revenue.
