Didi Chuxing Removed From Chinese App Store

Tim Hardwick:

Apple has been informed by China’s cyberspace regulator that it must remove the Didi Chuxing ride hailing app from the Chinese App Store following concerns about the Uber rival’s possible misuse of personal data.

The app in question is owned by Didi Global, which Apple has $1 billion invested in. Bloomberg reports that the ban was announced on Sunday by the Cyberspace Administration of China, citing serious violations on the company’s collection and usage of personal information, without going into detail.
