Google temporarily deletes a boycott application that identifies companies that support Israel from its online store

Google has removed a mobile application from its Google Play store that helps people identify companies that support and boycott Israel.
The boycott account, NothanksBoycott, confirmed on social media that its NoThanks application had been temporarily deleted, as a result of the description text, which included the sentence: “Welcome to NoThanks, here you can find out whether the product in your hands supports the killing of children in Palestine or not. All What you have to do is scan the barcode or type the serial number in the search bar.”

The account wrote on the “X” platform: “The application has been suspended from the Google Play Store because of this sentence. I removed it in the new update and the store will review it and launch it again.”

Google has returned the application to its store, according to what the NothanksBoycott account announced on the X platform at the beginning of this week. The account asked users to delete the old version and download the latest version so that they could get future updates from the Google Store immediately.

The NothanksBoycott account explained, “This app is a peaceful form of protest, and it is necessary to clarify that the app is not anti-Semitic, despite attempts by some other news and reports to describe it as such.”

The app profile on X Now says Nothanks is “an iOS and Android app to help you know which product to boycott by just scanning its bar code.”

The developer of the boycott app Nothanks revealed on November 7 that it would help individuals identify companies that support Israel.

The developer stated at the time: “I am a Palestinian developer and I created an application that will help everyone in the boycott movement. All you have to do is scan the bar code of the product and it will tell you. The application will be released soon on Android and iOS systems.”

NothanksBoycott shared several videos of people using the app to scan barcodes in stores and avoid products that support "massacres."

By November 29, the application had been downloaded more than 100,000 times on the Google Play Store.
