According to foreign media reports, Apple has blocked Facebook from using its research application by revoking its enterprise developer certificate. What agreement does Apple violate in revoking the FB certificate? What's behind it?
It is reported that Apple provides the so-called enterprise developer certificate, which enables enterprises to have in-depth control over the iPhone, install applications remotely on the iPhone, monitor the use and access of applications, and delete data owned by enterprises.
Earlier, according to techcrunch, Facebook was paying some users, including teenagers, to download an app. The app allows Facebook to gain deep access to activities on users' mobile phones.
Apple's reason for revoking Facebook's enterprise developer certificate is that Facebook has violated Apple's agreement by releasing a 'research' app that collects user data such as location private letters. And after being blocked by apple, Facebook used its corporate developer identity to pay ordinary users to push research applications that were originally aimed at employees to continue collecting data.
