Tim Cook...the CEO of Apple...is promising to investigate an app that lets Saudi men control where women travel.
??The app is called Absher and INSIDER reported that it sends alerts to men when women use their passport to leave the country.
??Cook told NPR quote, “I haven’t heard about it.
But obviously we’ll take a look at it if that’s the case.” ??One Democratic Senator called the app “abhorrent” and confronted ??Cook and Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai in a letter.
??Now, looking at Saudi Arabian law, all women must have a male representative to decide if they can travel outside of the country.
??According to Apptopia, Absher has been downloaded nearly 10 million times on the App Store and Google Play since 2015.
??Google and Apple are also coming under fire because both companies hosted the controversial Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in 2018.
??MBS even got a tour of the Apple headquarters and spoke to Cook.
