Son Instagram sent the order to the developer of the app, not to take part in such malicious activities otherwise legal notice would be taken against them. However, in the meanwhile, Apple removed Like Patrol for violating App store’s guidelines.

However, on the other hand, the developer of Like patrol, Quintero said:

“We strongly believe that our app does not violate Apple policies, we plan to appeal this decision in the coming days. “If our app’s functionality did violate any policies, then Instagram would have violated the exact same policies from 2011 to 2019 with the Following tab. Why weren’t they taken down?”

Well, his question is quite valid but it will not make any difference to the tech giants like Apple and Instagram.
