Apple's App Store and the Google Play Store continue to receive the Absher government program from Saudi Arabia, which allows men to follow their country the movement of female relatives and their restriction
According to the Washington Post, the program developed by the Saudi Ministry of Interior is e. government and e. service portal, including features such as passport, birth certificate, vehicle registration or other document request. However, as part of Business Insider last week, it also allows male Saudi Arabia to "tell when and how women can cross Saudi Arabia's borders, and when they travel, get closer to real-time SMS updates." destinations Saudi Arabia women can travel and deny travel anywhere in the country, and the SMS notification system is used to alert men if women try to leave their own.
This is quite a big thing given the fact that Saudi Arabian women live in a patriarchal "custody" system that requires them to be lawful for human addiction, and that that man should have permission to attend school, manage his work and finance, marry and travel abroad or publicly. Women must also have male chaperones in most cases and have less legitimate rights than men and may be arrested for 'disobedience'. Absher, of course, automatically automates the elements of this system, and, as the mail said, the ministry says that 11 million. Consumers
Critics say the program violates the policies of both stores, such as Bullying and Harassment.
"We urge Apple and Google to assess the risk of human rights abuses for women, and to mitigate the App's harm to women," said Amnesty International. "Using the" Absheron "program to reduce the women's movement, once again draws attention to the alarming discrimination against women in the system according to the care system and the real human rights reform in the country, and not only social and economic reforms."

Democratic Senator Ron Wyden also exploded on Google and Apple Monday saying hosting was "unreasonable" and "abusing women in Saudi Arabia".
According to NPR, Begum claimed that Appum was useful for some women trying to flee oppression, but only because they could steal secretly your guardian phone and use it to remove travel restrictions. On Monday, Apple's CEO Tim Cook said NPR, but of course, let's look at whether this is the case.
Apple and Google have different systems for marking invalid applications. Apple Prescreens and Begum say Google reports violations to its users. However, she says that every company needs to reinforce the control of government-sponsored programs, especially when they are created by repressive regimes
"They should take into account the consequences of human rights … especially when it comes to government," she says. says. "When they evaluate whether a program should be allowed … providers should really consider the broader context or purpose of the program, how it is used in practice, and whether it facilitates abuse."
Apple and Google immediately return comments on this history from Gizmod, and we will update if we hear.
However, it is far from being the only activity of the Saudi government that called for a delay. His authoritarian monarchy is currently de facto controlling the crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, who tried to portray himself as a friendly reformer to modernize the country and create an economy independent of oil.
In its power, the kingdom remained an ally of the US Armed Forces, which received large arms shipments from the States, despite the fact that the Prince was a very large-scale fight against different wars in Yemen, characterized by suspicions of war crimes. Last year, Saudi Arabia tortured and murdered a dissident journalist in a self-appointed exile and Washington Post Colonel Jamal Khashogg at the country's Consulate in Istanbul, pointing out the great resentment and persuading many technology companies to push out of a high-level investment conference.
Donald Trump's administration responded by issuing brilliant statements in support of US-Saudi relations, reselling the nation with billions of weapons and suppressing intelligence reports on Khashoggi's death
