Google Play Store Bans Fake ID Apps

Google is stepping up and is now going to not allow fake ID generators in its Play Store. I have to admit that I was left asking, "How is these even a thing?" While I have not used any of these, there does not seem to be a shortage of these apps available for free. I am sure there are not privacy concern with using these free apps either.

We don't allow apps that help users to mislead others, including, but not limited to, apps that generate or facilitate the generation of ID cards, social security numbers, passports, diplomas, credit cards and driver's licenses. Any claim that an app is a "prank", "for entertainment purposes" (or other synonym) does not exempt an app from application of our policies.
