86% were aimed at children 12 and under for Google, 89% for Apple.

Pixalate, a platform specializing in analytics and fraud protection, for privacy for connected TV and mobile advertising published a study (PDF) on September 14 on deleted apps on the App Store and Play Store in the first half of 2021, between January 1 and June 30.

Most of the discontinued services are aimed at young children

Pixalate’s report shows that 813,000 apps have been removed from the two most popular stores on the planet. The platform notes that the reasons for these deletions are not known: they may be due to the developer or for violation of the policies of the App Store and Play Store.
