It is no longer possible to download the application of Tumblr on iOS, the operating system of the iPhone and iPad. The US social network has confirmed its absence from the App Store, the Apple application store, this weekend. "We are in the process of fixing a problem on our iOS application and we hope to resolve the situation quickly," the company said. In the night from Monday to Tuesday, she made more explanations: child pornography content have escaped her moderation.

"We are working with many partners to combat this kind of content," explained Tumblr. "All the images published on our site are scanned, to be compared to a database of pedopornographic contents already known, so that they can not be shared. An audit uncovered new content that was not known from this database. "

It is unknown for the moment whether Apple or Tumblr are behind this removal of the application. The manufacturer of the iPhone regularly suspends applications for violating these rules. This is also the case for widely used services, such as the Telegram e-mail service, which was also briefly removed from the App Store after the proliferation of child pornography.

Child pornography is one of the categories of content on which the Web giants are most effective in their moderation, and on which they collaborate the most, through various alliances.
