China Orders Apple-Backed Didi Chuxing App Removed From App Stores

China has ordered the Apple-backed Didi Chuxing ride hailing app removed from app stores following a large U.S. initial public offering.

According to Bloomberg, the Cyberspace Administration of China announced a ban on the app on Sunday. It said that Didi violated rules for collection and usage of personal information but did not elaborate. The swift decision came just two days after the regulator announced a review of the company.
