Apple, Google criticised for Saudi Absher app that tracks women

Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and a women's rights activist told INSIDER that Apple and Google should reconsider hosting the app.

Yasmine Mohammed, a critic of Saudi Arabia, said: "There's a definite tragedy in the world's most technologically progressive platforms, Apple and Google, facilitating the most archaic misogyny."

Apple and Google have been accused of helping to "enforce gender apartheid" in Saudi Arabia, by offering a sinister app which allows men to track women and stop them leaving the country.

Human Rights Watch told INSIDER: "Apple and Google have rules against apps that facilitate threats and harassment.

Yasmine Mohammed, an ex-Muslim and outspoken critic of Saudi Arabia, told INSIDER that the companies are "facilitating the most archaic misogyny" and help the Saudi government to enforce "gender apartheid."
