Iran Android Market Removes Telegram

As per a judicial order, Iranian popular Android market Cafe Bazaar has removed Telegram messaging app from its services.
According to local technology business consultancy ECM, Telegram has been removed from Cafe Bazaar due to a judicial order issued by the Committee for Determining Instances of Criminal Content, a working group under the supervision of the attorney general. 
While the official Telegram applications (Telegram and Telegram X) have been removed from the app store, Cafe Bazaar still has locally developed ‘forks’ of the app on offer which have often been slammed by cyber security auditors as insecure.
In software engineering, a “project fork” happens when developers take a copy of the source code from one software package—in this case, Telegram’s source code—and start independent development, creating a distinct piece of software in the process.
Telegram is the most popular messaging app and social media platform in Iran with over 40 million active users. The services have been blocked in Iran since last Tuesday on a judicial order.
