Facebook vs Apple - The internal apps are now running

The recent news that Apple revoked Enterprise certification of internal apps that were being used by Facebook for its employees is now active and running. Apple had to revoke the license because of policy violations and privacy attack by Facebook with it’s “Facebook Research” iOS application.

Facebook was paying $20 each of its users in the mode of gift cards to establish enterprise certificate on their devices thus access their core personal information like browsing history, location, and even encrypted network usage.

Though the consumer-facing apps are not affected, the internal applications were fully down because of the “revocation of certificates”. Apple only allows enterprise certificate for employee use cases and on their devices, violation happens when external app testers come into play.
