  • Tumblr's app went missing because of child pornography

But now, as per WABetaInfo, the Twitter account that keeps a track on the upcoming WhatsApp features, Apple is removing all third-party WhatsApp Sticker apps from its App Store as they "are violating their guidelines".

The Tumblr app vanished suddenly from the Apple App Store several days ago and it has now been confirmed that the spread of child pornography on the blogging platform was at fault.

"The "Find My Device" app helps you locate your lost Android and lock it until you get it back and indoor maps would help you to find your device in airports, malls, or other large buildings", the app description on Google Play Store read.

If you have already downloaded one of the apps, uninstall them immediately. To fix the issue, some deleted the app and then tried to reinstall it.

This is its first time being removed from the App Store in the U.S. However, Tumblr has always been criticized for hosting questionable NSFW material, with a small, but still significant part of its content being pornographic in nature. A routine audit discovered content on our platform that had not yet been included in the industry database.

The social media site said it plans to work with industry peers and partners like the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to monitor uploaded content and address the "industry-wide problem". The malware is also hard to remove as the original game icon hides itself, and the malware launches in the background every time the Android phone or tablet is started up.

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. When he first made the news public, two of the apps were trending on the store which gave them even greater visibility.
