MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, April 8, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) — Internet giant Google has announced it is revising content guidelines for apps and its Play Store that will make it more family friendly.

The new Content Policy specifically targets pornography, including “sexually explicit or erotic content, irons, titles, or descriptions.” The company says it “has a zero-tolerance policy against child sexual abuse imagery.”

Phandroid.com reports that the changes will be strictly enforced, and hold developers accountable for ads and other material that slip into apps if they are of an explicit nature. Phandroid says it appears that even an accidental slip-up could lead to apps being banned from use by Google.

Last year, a study from Blue Coat Systems found that visiting X-rated websites left users with three times greater risk of malicious content than that of any other type of mobile activity.
