Its now high time Google appears to have come up with a move that will give relief to the users. Google appears to have decided to take a stand against apps that shows advertisements on the lock screen. Google's Developer Policy Center has witnessed changes detailing the types of appropriate apps that can be included in the Android app store and how these apps might appear.

There appears to be a new section called Lockscreen Monetization and it is stated that unless the app's purpose is that of a lock screen, the Android apps may not introduce features or ads that monetize the locked display of the specific device in which they are introduced.

This cleansing by Google will force the developers to stop including ads into their applications via the lock screen. The report notes that popular utility apps such as  ES File Explorer and Hotspot Shield VPN will no longer display ads on device lock screen with the intention of getting users to click on the ads..

Atimes, these ads on the lock screen are not ignorable and someone may accidentaly clicks on it, as these might redirect the users to websites that can phish the personal details stored on the device.

This new policy of Google that bans apps displaying ads on device lock screen is great for the Android users as it will not only free them from the annoying ads but also improve the security. However, this new policy will not affect users who have devices that are bundled with Amazon special offers and these phones will have ads displayed on the lock screen as these ads will be considered as lock screen apps.
