Apple Pulled VPNs From Its App Store In China

We all might have already know the benefits of using VPNs and the ones who don’t know let me just mention them again that VPNs allow its users to access online materials hiding their own IP address. Even they can have the access to those certain materials which might be blocked by internet filters.

So far, over the weekend at least 3 apps were deleted from Apple’s app store.

Since according to the new regulations those apps didn’t comply, it was legally required to remove those apps from the store.

On Saturday, ExpressVPN, VyprVPN, StarVPN have received a notice from Apple regarding their products’ removal from the app store.

Golden Frog, the company that distributes VyprVPN was critical of the decision, saying it would file an appeal with Apple.

Golden Frog’s president Sunday Yokubaitis in a blog post, “If Apple views accessibility as a human right, we would hope Apple will likewise recognize internet access as a human right (the UN has even ruled it as such) and would choose human rights over profits.”

But outside China all apps are still available.

For many years China has been censoring content which is even politically sensitive. And for that they have been using “great firewall” as the critics have named it for its increasingly sophisticated set of filters.

Apparently, China has been called as “”the year’s worst abuser of internet freedom” by the advocacy group Freedom House in its recent rankings.

VPNs allow users to skirt around these filters and gain access to websites and services that are restricted or banned.

However, the VPNs which has been accessed by the individuals rather than the companies have been targeted strictly.

China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced in January that all the VPNs developers must obtain a license from the Chinese Govt but as some rules don’t comply with Apple regarding VPNs those have to be removed.

Recently, China blocked social media posts and even private messages and group chats about the death of Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo.

The government is expected to tighten restrictions ahead of the next communist party congress, where President Xi Jinping is tipped to retain the top job.
