Tumblr Removed From Apple Store Over Child Pornography Content

Tumblr Removed From Apple Store Over Child Pornography Content”

It's not clear, however, whether Tumblr removed itself from the App Store or whether Apple kicked it out.

Although the company stated it was working to fix it, it didn't disclose the reason why the app vanished. We've sifted through the many on-sale titles on both platforms to ensure that you get the best value your money can buy.

According to The Verge, Tumblr users first reported issues earlier this week searching in the iOS app while not using Tumblr's Safe Mode for sensitive content. To fix the issue, some deleted the app and then tried to reinstall it. I already have the app on my phone, and didn't notice a disruption over the weekend, and any user who'd already downloaded the app may find it in the "Purchased" section of the App Store's settings.

The company has now published a statement acknowledging the issue with child pornography on its service.

Tumblr has attempted to remove adult content on its app following the removal from the App Store.

Last Friday, the app for the blogging site Tumblr quietly disappeared from the iOS App Store, with no apparent explanation.

Tumblr, a popular social networking and microblogging website, was recently booted from Apple's App Store after it was revealed that child pornography material had slipped through the platform's filter and wound up on the site.

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

"As this is an industry-wide problem, we work collaboratively with our industry peers and partners like NCMEC [National Center for Missing and Exploited Children] to actively monitor content uploaded to the platform", the Monday statement reads. A routine audit discovered content on our platform that had not yet been included in the industry database.

"We immediately removed this content", it said, and added: "Content safeguards are a challenging aspect of operating scaled platforms".
