Apple has removed almost all popular security apps offered by well-known cybersecurity vendor Trend Micro from its official Mac App Store after they were caught stealing users’ sensitive data without their consent.

The controversial apps in question include Dr Cleaner, Dr Cleaner Pro, Dr Antivirus, Dr Unarchiver, App Uninstall, Dr. Battery, and Duplicate Finder for Mac computers.

The apps were removed just two days after Apple kicked out another popular “Adware Doctor” application for collecting and sending browser history data from users’ Safari, Chrome, and Firefox to a server in China.
