It is a sad day for many people around the world. On March 13, 2014, the video sharing website, Google, sent a letter to the creators of YouTube Vanced informing them that the application was illegal.
This was due to an investigation carried out by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) that showed that the app downloaded images of child pornography from the internet.
In the letter, Google said that they would suspend all marketing and distribution of the app if it did not remove the offending content within ten days.
The NCMEC has demanded that the developers stop youtube vanced creating the app and permanently delete it. This was done because they found that the app enabled child abusers to download pictures of children and videos of them having sex.
The creators of the app claimed that they knew that their application contained this type of content, but they still kept it online because they didn’t want to be sued by the authorities. Many of the apps’ users, however, didn’t care about the legal issues and continued using the app.
Some of the worst videos from the app were still being uploaded to the Internet months after the application’s developers removed it. YouTube later shut down the app because it was illegal.
