    跟蹤女性的應用惹爭議,谷歌堅持不下架

    Haillie Detrick 2019年03月10日

    谷歌稱,調查結果發現這一應用并未違反任何協議。

    谷歌將繼續在其應用商店中提供頗具爭議的沙特應用Absher,此前,調查發現該應用并未違反其服務條款。

    蘋果和谷歌在上個月遭到了審查,當時,14名美國國會議員聯名致信蘋果的首席執行官蒂姆·庫克和谷歌的首席執行官桑達·皮查伊,要求這兩家公司下架該應用,原因在于它強化了允許男人控制女性動向的沙特法律。這兩家公司均對這一應用發起了內部調查。

    在完成調查后,谷歌向聯名信的簽署人之一、國會女議員杰基·斯貝爾的辦公室透露,調查結果發現這一應用并未違反任何協議。蘋果的調查仍在進行當中。

    由沙特政府贊助的Absher能夠讓市民完成各類官方程序性事務,從駕照的續期,一直到男性監護人授予女性就業的法定許可等。

    一些沙特人表示,該應用實際上能夠節省時間,而且讓這些繁文縟節更加便利,但美國律師對此持有不同看法。向蘋果和谷歌另行致信的俄勒岡州參議員羅恩·維登表示:“美國公司不應該幫助實現或助長沙特政府的父權體制。”(財富中文網)

    Google will continue to host the controversial Saudi Arabian app Absher in its Play store after a probe found the app did not violate its terms of service.

    Apple and Google came under scrutiny last month when 14 members of Congress wrote a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook and Google CEO Sundar Pichai asking both companies to stop hosting the app because it reinforces Saudi laws that allow men to control women’s movements. Both companies launched internal investigations into the app.

    At the conclusion of Google’s investigation, the company told the office of Congresswoman Jackie Speier, one of the letter’s signatories, that the investigation concluded the app doesn’t violate any agreements. Apple’s investigation continues.

    Absher, which is sponsored by the Saudi government, allows citizens to complete a variety of bureaucratic tasks, from renewing driver’s licenses to male guardians giving women permission to seek a job, which is legally required in Saudi Arabia.

    Some Saudis say the app actually saves time and makes bureaucratic tasks easier, but American lawmakers seem to disagree. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, who sent a separate letter to Apple and Google, said, “American companies should not enable or facilitate the Saudi government’s patriarchy.”
