In 2016, Google accused DO Global who are the company behind the ES software line of carrying out irregular ad clicks from their user’s applications. It was alleged that DO has programmed a script to click ads on users phones which they had no knowledge of and drive up ad revenue on their applications.

DO Global carried out an investigation and admitted their guilt and promised to rectify the situation. However, since 2016, Google hasn’t allowed them back on the Play Store.
