Google is attempting to crack down on rogue mobile apps on its Android platform with stricter guidelines for developers.
The measures include a ban on using icons that are "confusingly similar" to that of existing products.
The search giant also issued rules on how advertising should appear in apps.
Since its launch, the Google Play store has featured a significant number of malicious apps, or counterfeit versions of popular games such as Angry Birds.
The new guidelines were announced in an email to developers who have 30 days to make sure their apps comply.
Developers who do not comply with the measures could see their products removed from the store.
