According to reports, Google has removed the 'Adblock Fast' ad blocking mobile app from its Google Play app store. The app pulled by Google is a new and popular ad blocking app for the Samsung's mobile web browser, the Samsung Internet Browser.
The Adblock Fast ad blocking mobile app which has been removed from the Google Play store is developed by Rockship Apps. The app essentially works with the new Content Blocker Extension API, which supports third-party plugins which allow for the blocking of ads on the mobile web.
The Content Blocker API, with which the now-removed Adblock Fast app works, has recently been introduced by Samsung in its Samsung Internet Browser that is installed as the default browser on company's Android-powered handsets.

Kennish further added that the supposedly-violated 'Section 4.4' informs app developers that they cannot release those apps on the Play store which cause interference to "the devices, servers, networks, or other properties or services of any third-party including, but not limited to, Android users, Google or any mobile network operator."
