More details about why it was taken off Apple’s store after being approached by tech news site Cnet with a claim that indecent images of children were the cause.

In its statement, it said that all images uploaded to Tumblr pass through a database of “known child sexual abuse material”. It added that any matches to the database are detected and deleted – and would never appear on its platform.

In this case, it said, the images being uploaded were not in the industry database so its filters did not catch them. However, it said, the illegal content was discovered during a routine audit.

“We immediately removed this content,” it said, and added: “Content safeguards are a challenging aspect of operating scaled platforms.”
