Mitron app — the popular Indian alternative for TikTok — has been removed from Google Play store earlier this week. The app had over 5 million downloads. Google has finally responded on the removal of Mitron app and said, “A number of recent app removals received particular attention in India and we wanted to clarify our actions. Earlier this week, we removed a video app for a number of technical policy violations. We have an established process of working with developers to help them fix issues and resubmit their apps. We’ve given this developer some guidance and once they’ve addressed the issue the app can go back up on Play.”

If you have Mitron app installed on your phone we highly recommend uninstalling the app right away and not use it. We checked the Mitron app and found there’s no way you can delete your account from the app. Users can either log out of the app or simply uninstall it. The settings menu is also missing on the app now.
We also recommend you to beware of all the clones of Mitron available on Google Play store. You must always check the developer first before installing an app on your smartphone.
