Facebook suspends around 200 apps in privacy audit
14 May, 2018, 20:46 | Author: Corey Lynch
Facebook Inc has so far suspended around 200 apps in the first stage of its review into apps that had access to large quantities of user data, in a response to a scandal around political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.
The investigation is ongoing but the site has confirmed hundreds of apps have so far been suspended, pending further analysis of their behaviour.
Facebook is investigating all apps that had access to large amounts of user information before Facebook changed its policies in 2014.
Any app that fails Facebook's audit process will be banned from the site and users will be able to see if they or their friends installed the app from a special website. "Thousands" of apps have been examined, pending what the social network describes as a "thorough investigation" into whether these apps misappropriated user information.
"We have large teams of internal and external experts working hard to investigate these apps as quickly as possible."
'We are investing heavily to make sure this investigation is as thorough and timely as possible.
The company said it was probing thousands of apps on top of those already suspended.
Archibong added that Facebook will be conducting interviews with and submitting requests for informations to any developers' whose apps raise concerns.
Archibong promised more updates as the investigation progresses. The company did something similar to notify people that their information had been shared with Cambridge Analytica by an app called "This Is Your Digital Life".
Apps that access information from Pages, which are often used for tasks like scheduling posts and responding to messages and comments, will need Facebook's approval.
Given the likely scale of data misuse by developers on its platform there is an argument for Facebook to publish a public list of suspensions.
