Following the removal of alternative social media sites such as Parler and Gab from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, many have been left thinking they unable to access these platforms on their mobile devices. Here is how to easily access them whether you use an iPhone and Android device.
With Big Tech censorship ramping up in the wake of the election, multiple alternative social media platforms have been removed from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Some sites have even been taken offline entirely, such as Parler which was recently taken down after its web hosting provider, Amazon Web Services, terminated the site’s account. This censorship predates the election, Gab, for example, was removed from both app stores in 2019, but the level of censorship by Google and Apple is increasing and is likely to impact more apps beyond the social media space.
