Again. Facebook continues to drain data deliberately
Recently, a scandal with a massive data leak through Facebook has died down. Journalists from The Wall Street Journal indicate the continuation of an intentional leak regarding court documents.
Back in 2015, Facebook promised to disable access to special records, called “Whitelists”. But again, it broke their word.
“White Lists” contain information about the friends of registered users, including their phone numbers.
As Ime Archibong, vice president of partnering with partner products, said, Facebook really provided some companies with “short-term extensions” for such data. Among the partner companies are Royal Bank of Canada and Nissan Motor Company.
Archibong states that there were no indulgences for the companies. But how can you believe in the confidentiality of data after a constant leak?
