Apple has removed the Unjected dating app for vaccine opponents from its App Store. writes Bloomberg. Apple said Unjected violated the corporation’s coronavirus reporting rules.
The Unjected app is still available on Google Play, although the company was the first to pay attention to user comments regarding vaccinations.
The Unjected platform started out as a dating site but recently launched a social feed. Regular updates to the app triggered a review on Google Play, which showed that user-generated content was insufficiently checked for misinformation. Google noted reports that said vaccines are “biological weapons” and “microchips with nanotechnology” used to connect people to the 5G network.
On July 16, Google announced that the creators of Unjected have two weeks to remove posts from their app store and improve user content moderation.
Created by two Hawaiian women, Unjected bills itself as a community of “like-minded people who support medical autonomy and free speech.” The app allows users to create a profile, search for compatible partners, and chat with other members. It launched in May shortly after major dating sites including Match Group’s Tinder and Bumble Inc. offered discounts to users who had been vaccinated. Unjected, sometimes referred to as “Tinder for anti-Axis”, has been downloaded 18,000 times.
