Apple removes several parental apps from the App Store

Apple has recently removed several parental control apps from the App Store, because they put users’ privacy and security at risk. The tech giant says it’s important to understand why and how this happened and has issued a statement about it here.

Apple also had this to say: “Apple has always believed that parents should have tools to manage their children’s device usage. It’s the reason we created, and continue to develop, Screen Time. Other apps in the App Store, including Balance Screen Time by Moment Health and Verizon Smart Family, give parents the power to balance the benefits of technology with other activities that help young minds learn and grow.”
