Google has helped Robinhood by deleting 100,000 bad reviews. This comes after people organized campaigns social media to "review-bomb" the app down to a very low rating, The Verge reports.
Robinhood came under scrutiny this week after it blocked people from buying GameStop, AMC, and other stocks which were made popular by r/WallStreetBets subreddit investing groups.
Google said that it deleted the reviews because of a policy which prohibits reviews that have the intent of manipulating an app's rating. The company added that it uses a system that "combines human intelligence with machine learning to detect and enforce policy violations in ratings and reviews."
Robinhood has not seen any new reviews on the App Store, meaning that it has maintained its 4.7 stars rating on that platform. However, some users are going further than reviews and a class action lawsuit has been launched in New York against the brokerage house.
Robinhood responded to the outcry yesterday by stating that they would allow "limited buys" of certain stocks today. They added that their decision to block stocks was "a risk-management decision." Robinhood had been the number one download on app stores.
