Facebook Has Discovered 200 More Apps That May Have Misused Peoples Data


Facebook has revealed that there are 200 more apps that it has discovered that could have possibly misused your data.

After the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook has been looking into other apps and has now suspended 200 more.

We have large teams of internal and external experts working hard to investigate these apps as quickly as possible. To date thousands of apps have been investigated and around 200 have been suspended — pending a thorough investigation into whether they did in fact misuse any data. Where we find evidence that these or other apps did misuse data, we will ban them and notify people via this website. It will show people if they or their friends installed an app that misused data before 2015 — just as we did for Cambridge Analytica.

There is a lot more work to be done to find all the apps that may have misused people’s Facebook data – and it will take time. We are investing heavily to make sure this investigation is as thorough and timely as possible. We will keep you updated on our progress.

You can find out more details about the company’s investigations into these app over at their website at the link below.
