Yahoo Finance app pulled from Chinese App Store

Yahoo Finance appears to be the latest victim of China’s suppressive internet regulations, as the iOS app used by many to access foreign news coverage is no longer available in that country’s App Store.

The app was purged on Oct. 14, according to Apple Censorship, a website that tracks App Store takedowns and changes. It is unclear who pulled Yahoo Finance or for what reason, and neither Apple nor Yahoo have responded to requests for comment on the matter.

Chinese users relied on the app to read news stories from media outlets that are typically blocked by China’s Great Firewall and other internet censorship programs, reports The Telegraph. Capable of effectively bypassing the government’s carefully laid content restrictions, Yahoo’s app likely caught the attention of authorities like the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) and was subsequently marked for removal.

Days prior to the strike, Yahoo Finance republished a Bloomberg story critical of China’s crackdown on the tech industry, the report said. The article contained reference to supposed preferential treatment afforded to Apple in exchange for compliance with government requests, including app takedown notices.

“Recently Apple has been removing many apps at the demand of the Chinese authorities,” said Benjamin Ismail, project director at Apple Censorship, told the publication. “But complying with governments’ orders is different than complying with law, especially in China, where the authorities often resort to extralegal means to muzzle the press, bloggers, activists or any dissenting voices.”

Apple is widely viewed as having an obsequious relationship with Chinese authorities like the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC). Despite touting itself as a staunch champion of human rights causes, like freedom of expression and access to information, the iPhone maker routinely cows to requests that stifle such agency. At stake is a massive consumer market that is well positioned to dictate success or failure in terms of future growth.
