Apple Forces Facebook to Remove Spyware-Like Onavo VPN App From App Store

The Infinite Brief
Facebook is removing its controversial and spyware-like Onavo Protect application from the App Store.

Apple informed Facebook earlier this month that Onavo Protect violated new App Store Guidelines.

Apple reportedly suggested to Facebook that it “voluntarily” remove the Onavo Protect app from the App Store, to which Facebook agreed.

While Facebook touted Onavo Protect as a way for users to keep themselves and their data safe, what it actually did was create a VPN that directed user traffic through a Facebook-managed server.
