Canonical announces Snap Store crackdown after crypto scam apps overload

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

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