Apple explains why it removed screen-time limiting apps

Apr 29, 2019 18:02 IST

In an official statement, Apple defended its removal of certain parental control apps from the App Store by claiming they relied on technology that put users privacy and security at risk. The tech giant was recently criticised for booting apps that gave parents more control over their children screen time. However, according to Apple,certain parental control apps were in violation of the updated App Store guidelines, as they used device management tools to access personal data such as location info, e-mail accounts and even web browsing history.
