App that promoted secret parties during the COVID-19 pandemic is removed from App Store


#While 2020 was all about social distancing and staying at home, there was a controversial app promoting secret private parties during the COVID-19 pandemic. #Thankfully, the iOS app was removed from the #App #Store this week.

“Vybe #Together” was recently launched as a new way to allow people to promote secret parties that should not happen during the pandemic.”#Get your rebel on. #Get your party on,” said the app website — which was also taken down.

The idea of the app was to offer a platform where users could organize underground parties and promote them to anyone who wanted to participate. #Those who were approved to join the party received the address two hours before the event.

#As reported by The #Verge, the app was suddenly removed from the #App #Store and its official #TikTok account was also banned. #In some regions, having a party with a reasonable number of people is considered illegal due to the current circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic — so it’s unclear why #Apple approved the app in the first place.

The #Verge was able to speak with #Albin, one of the co-founders of #Vybe #Together. #Albin said the app had a few thousand users and that interest on the app grew after some demo videos were shared on #TikTok. #In order to gain access to the app, users had to share their #Instagram profiles to prove that they weren’t someone spying on the events to report them.

#It’s unclear whether the app has contributed extensively to unauthorized events since it was launched. #According to the report, #Vybe #Together app had only 25 ratings in the #App #Store before it was removed, while its #Instagram account had about a thousand followers. #Vybe #Together’s #Instagram profile was also banned today, so it seems the app is gone for good.
