Why does Samsung restrict access to certain apps on the app store to select countries.

It's understandable when such apps are introducing experimental features but now for instance, you have Samsung Good Lock which was launched nearly 10 years ago, and is advertised on the global Samsung page but is still only officially available in 30 countries. This despite Samsung phones being sold worldwide.

It only encourages users to access search apps through unofficial stores and repositories which comes with a whole host of security risks.

I don't think that's a factor in the case of say, Samsung Good Lock apps.

It's SOOO AGGRAVATING. None of the goos lock apps are available in Bulgaria. WHY? I don't understand why you would lock people out of using apps that make your s****y UI usable....
