Google Play has been forced to remove a Boyfriend Tracker app from sale in Brazil in response to complaints about privacy abuses, as well as its potential to be used for extortion or stalking.

Brazilians were outraged when they learned their country was a top target of the U.S. National Security Agency’s top secret overseas spying operation, but it seems that all bets are off when it comes to catching cheaters.

Tens of thousands managed to download the software before it was pulled off the market.
