<p style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Sugar dating by nature is often pushed underground and therefore tends to reside alongside malware and other illicit trends. Apps such as these can even be developed to harvest sensitive data and not actually commit to what they offer.</p>
<p style=\"font-weight: 400;\">This new shake up, however, acts as a comfort blanket to all Play Store users with their best interests at heart. Google is clearly cleaning up what they can which is likely to further protect users from rogue and more untoward apps.</p>
