A Brazilian judge is demanding that Google remove the social networking app Secret from the Play Store and from all Brazilian phones that have the app installed. This comes after multiple cases of bullying and harassment carried out through the popular app. While the ruling sounds a little extreme, Google has the power to remove the app from devices remotely, though they reserve such measures for malicious or harmful apps.
Such a ruling is unprecedented and it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Google have yet to comment on the fiasco, but will have to make a decision within ten days or the Brazilian government will begin fining them £30,000 each day (roughly $50,000).
