Apple removes screen-recording codes

In the wake of several popular iOS apps that were found recording users’ screen interaction without their knowledge, Apple has now asked app developers to properly disclose or totally remove the analytics code that leads to screen recording, otherwise the apps would be wiped off from the App Store.
“Our App Store Review Guidelines require that apps request explicit user consent and provide a clear visual indication when recording, logging, or otherwise making a record of user activity and we have notified the developers that are in violation of these strict privacy terms and guidelines, and will take immediate action if necessary,” said an Apple spokesperson.
The iOS apps, that were found recording user screens, did not mention using session-replay technology in their privacy policy, subjecting sensitive data like passport numbers and credit card numbers to the risk of being leaked.Last week, Apple banned the ‘Research’ app from Facebook that was found to be paying teenagers to collect their data.
