Apple removes Instagram stalking app Like Patrol from App Store

Apple just Removed Like Patrol from the App Store, an Instagram-Stalking App

Apple has taken down Like Patrol from its App Store, an Instagram-stalking app, explaining it violated the company’s guidelines…

As previously reported, Instagram was looking for a way to get rid of Like Patrol, an app that makes digital stalking much easier on the stalker.

The Facebook subsidiary recently sent a cease and desist letter to the company. Now, Apple has removed it from the App Store for violating the company’s guidelines.

Apple Pulls Instagram-Stalking Mobile App Like Patrol from the App Store

Originally, Like Patrol scraped data from the now defunct “Following” tab on Instagram. However, Instagram ditched the Following tab, putting Like Patrol in an awkward position with its user base.

Like Patrol first rolled out to the public this July on iOS, coming in the form of a subscription, costs $2.99 per week or $80 for a year.

Although the mobile app is no longer available in the Apple App Store, previous downloads are likely still accessible and working condition. However, without a way to legitimately disseminate the app, it’s days are probably numbered.
