Beijing, Apr 13 (Xinhua/UNI) Chinese authorities have removed more than 33,000 mobile apps that contain illegal content, such as those involving porn, gambling, rogue programs and illegal games since December, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) said.

Moreover, over 24.7 million entries with vulgar or other unhealthy content on social network platforms have been cleaned up, with over three million accounts being closed, it said.
