Facebook to connect with 87 million users hit by data breach

WEB DESK
fb

Under fire globally for allowing the data breach, social media giant Facebook will today start alerting the 87 million users, including more than 5 lakh 60 thousand in India, whose data may have been compromised as the UK-based Cambridge Analytica pilfered them through an app.

The US-based company will send a detailed message at the top of users’ news feed, offering information on apps they use and the information they have shared with those apps.

It will also tell people if their information may have been improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica, the data mining firm accused of harvesting personal information of millions of Facebook users illegally to influence polls in several countries.

Facebook users will also have the opportunity to use the link to delete apps and prevent them from collecting more information.

Also, all 2.2 billion Facebook users will receive a link to see what apps they use and what information they have shared with those apps.

The past few days have seen a global outrage over the breach of user data on Facebook, forcing the company to issue a public apology.
