Apple recently revealed that it had previously banned messaging app Telegram from its Apps Stode because some users were apparently using it to share child abuse pictures.

According to App Store manager Phil Schiller, they were able to confirm that illegal content was being shared on the platform, which is why they took down the apps, alerted the developer, and notified the proper authorities, including the NCMEC (National Center for Missing and Exploited Children).

Telegram had been restored a couple of hours after the issue had been addressed. The app however, still has a reputation of harboring violent, extremist, and other illegal content such as child pornography.
