Ever since the Facebook Cambridge Analytica scandal, the social network has been investigation apps on its platform and the way peoples data is used.
The company has now confirmed that it has suspended more than 400 apps since it started its investigation back in March.
Since launching our investigation in March, we have investigated thousands of apps. And we have suspended more than 400 due to concerns around the developers who built them or how the information people chose to share with the app may have been used — which we are now investigating in much greater depth.
It’s also why we’ve changed many of our policies — such as our expansion of App Review and our new policy that no information will be shared with apps if you haven’t used them in 90 days. We will continue to investigate apps and make the changes needed to our platform to ensure that we are doing all we can to protect people’s information.
