MetaMask Temporarily Removed from Apple’s App Store, Sparking Concerns

On October 14, the leading Ethereum wallet, MetaMask, was temporarily removed from the Apple App Store, raising fears of a permanent ban. MetaMask, which has over 30 million users worldwide, informed the community that the problem was not caused by security concerns or malicious activity.

Apple's service regulations, which ban "unrelated background processes" such as cryptocurrency mining, are thought to be the cause of the brief removal. The company indicated that MetaMask would be available again via the App Store soon.

This isn't MetaMask's first encounter with tech giants. In 2019, it was suspended from Google Play for violating financial services guidelines. Google's ban was linked to its anti-cryptocurrency mining policy, with MetaMask's appeal denied.
