    While Apple has provided a mechanism to create safe, private content blocking extensions for Safari on iPhone and iPad, in the last few days apps have taken it a step further, installing root certificates in order to block ads inside apps as well.
    The problem with these blocker apps is that they work by installing VPN profiles, which means they intermediate secure connections and "see" all your private internet traffic. They are, essentially, a voluntary person-in-the-middle attack. For that reason, Apple is removing them from the App Store.
