Facebook's Research app was banned earlier this year by Apple over violating its rules. The social media giant said that it collected personal & sensitive device data on over 187,000 users, 31,000 US users & the rest from India. TechCrunch investigation earlier this year found that both FB & Google were abusing their Apple-issued enterprise certificates. Apple had banned the apps by revoking FB's developer certificate.
