Doctor Web reports on Dr.Web Security Space Life`s sudden removal from Google Play

March 26, 2019

Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web is notifying users that Google has removed Dr.Web Security Space for Android Life from its online store.

This step comes as a follow-up to Google’s recent change of its call log and SMS permission policy. The Call and SMS filter and Anti-theft components of the Doctor Web app require these permissions. The company has been negotiating with Google for all the application features to remain available to users. However, currently Dr.Web Security Space Life is not available on Google Play.

Doctor Web is doing its best to make the application available in the software catalogue again.

Users owning Dr.Web Security Space Life licenses can contact our support service. Provide your license order number and the associated email address in the support query. In response, you will receive the application apk-file. Information about other life license usage options will be made available later.

Doctor Web is offering all Dr.Web Security Space for Android Life users who purchased their licenses on Google Play, and, due to recent changes in Google’s SMS and call permission policy, have been deprived of the ability to use the Call and SMS Filter and the Anti-theft included in the anti-virus, to exchange their license—for free—for a Dr.Web Security Space for Android subscription with no end date.

Information about other license usage options will be made available later.
