Although Uptodown reserves the right to refuse the admission of apps to its platform, there are a number of specific criteria for which an app may be rejected:
- Apps that don't work properly (crashes, black screen, etc.).
- Apps that don't have a clear and specific function.
- Apps with excessive and intrusive advertising.
- Apps with malware detected by Virustotal that we consider harmful to the user.
- Apps that perform some kind of phishing or identity theft attempt.
- Apps that use trademarks or others' iconography trying to impersonate them.
- IPTV apps that include lists of paid channels.
- Apps with tricks, infinite coins, or hacks for video games that don't allow these practices.
- Apps to gain followers in a fictitious way.
- Apps that collect links to private social network groups.
- Apps with guides of low-quality video games.
- Apps with explicit sexual content.
Nevertheless, our editorial team may consider other possible reasons for rejection not listed here based on the app's subject matter (terrorism, violence, hatred towards social groups) or potential malicious use of the app. Likewise, all these criteria could be applied later if an app is updated and any of these practices are detected in its new versions.
