Google continues its war against “fake” applications! The challenge is huge and the company has shown itself to be attentive and some drastic measures have been taken.

Earlier this week, BuzzFeed News reported how apps on the Play Store from Chinese firm DO Global regularly committed click fraud  automatically clicking on ads on behalf of users. Google has already removed apps and suspended accounts owned by DO Global, and it appears ES File Manager may be part of the ongoing crackdown.

ES File Manager is a well-known file manager, though its popularity has waned in recent years as it passed from developer to developer. The developer was most recently listed as ‘ES Global’ on the Play Store, though the app is actually owned by ‘Du Global’. As LinkedIn confirms, Du is a subdivision of DO Global, the company currently intertwined in the click fraud scandal.

After removing the “Do Global” developer and its apps from the Android application store, the search giant has now banned the ES File Explorer app.

Is ES File Explorer part of a scam?

After detecting a serious security flaw, Google has now discovered that after all ES File Explorer also belongs to the “DO Global” group, although it appears listed as belonging to the ” Global ES”, which is after all a subgroup of the ” Do Global “to overcome the limitations imposed by Google.

In addition to removing the app, Google also banned the ” Global ES ” programmer. Google remains so intent on fraudulent schemes and apps. As we mentioned, the challenge is not easy because the official Android application store has thousands of applications from the most diverse programmers.

If you have installed ES File Explorer on your system, surely the best option is to remove this tool and look for some reliable alternative. This file manager was undoubtedly one of the best and most complete tools.
