The Removal of Tumblr iOS App Might Be Due To Child Pornography

WhatsApp Sticker Apps Reportedly Being Removed From App Store

That history led some to speculate, The Verge reported, that Tumblr was removed by the App Store over inappropriate content-an issue Apple has been known to take a stand on.

Per Apple's App Store Review Guidelines, objectionable content includes content that's "offensive, insensitive, upsetting, meant to disgust, or in exceptionally poor taste".

"We're working to resolve an issue with the iOS app and hope to be fully functional again soon".

In October, WhatsApp announced in a blog post that it is adding support for third-party developers to build sticker apps for WhatsApp for both Android and iOS users.

Post this announcement, the Apple App Store began being flooded with these sticker apps.

Jarryd Hayne charged with aggravated sexual assault
But, at some point during the incident, the woman claims Hayne's actions turned criminal and she suffered injuries as a result. He is yet to comment on the latest allegations, and his family on the NSW Central Coast told 9 News "there'll be no comment".

While some originally wondered whether the removal of the app was due to a technical problem, Tumblr told sister site CNET that the app was removed as illegal child pornography was not being stopped by the platform's filters and protections. To fix the issue, some deleted the app and then tried to reinstall it.

However, Download.com learned what really happened-proving the speculations were right.

"Every image uploaded to Tumblr is scanned against an industry database of known child sexual abuse material, and images that are detected never reach the platform", a spokesman said.

The social media platform confirmed, "A routine audit discovered content on our platform that had not yet been included in the industry database".

Tumblr explains that it has always been working to create a safe online environment and has collaborated with "peers and partners" to monitor uploaded content.

"Content safeguards are a challenging aspect of operating scaled platforms", Tumblr says. "We're continuously assessing further steps we can take to improve and there is no higher priority for our team".
