Why Did Apple Suspend Temu From Its Digital App Store in 2023?

A lawsuit filed by State Attorney General Tim Griffin in Cleburne County is targeting the holding company of an online shopping service, Temu, and its business dealings, citing consumer privacy risk as a byproduct of the company making a profit.

"While this is my [says Griffin] first state lawsuit against Temu over its deceptive trade practices, it is not the first time Temu's tactics have been called into question. Apple suspended Temu from its digital app store in 2023, prompting multiple investigations into the company's dealings, including an ongoing investigation being conducted by the U.S. Congress."

Griffin also outlined some of the data he says Temu is obtaining, saying biometric data, which includes fingerprints stored in devices, and location are some examples.
