Senator Wants Apple, Google to Ban App Allowing Saudis to Track Women

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) is asking the chief executives of Apple and Google to immediately stop offering a Saudi e-government app that allows men in Saudi Arabia to track and control the movement of women. In a letter sent to the tech giants, Wyden urged them to prevent their app stores from being used by the Saudi government to continue the “abhorrent surveillance and control of women.”
