Apple Eliminated police-tracking Program

Last updated on November 2, 2019

Apple eliminated a program that protestors in Hong Kong have utilized to monitor police moves. The business stated it violated its principles and it had been used to ambush authorities.

The program uses information from protesters around the floor. Apple initially refused it out of its store. When it afterward emerged on the App Store, there was a sharply-worded reaction in the official Chinese press.

Under the organization’s rules, programs have occasionally been removed following their release when they had been utilized to facilitate illegal activity or endanger public security.
