Canonical announces crackdown on Snap Store after overload of crypto scam apps

Going forward, all newly registered apps on the Snap Store will be manually reviewed by Canonical’s engineering teams – and furthermore, the developers of these apps will have to accept a background check and be doxxed if they want their apps to be available on the repository.

The news was confirmed by Holly Hall, product leader at Canonical, the company that provides commercial support and services for Ubuntu and related projects.
