Remove apps you don’t want, Facebook asks users


LONDON: Days after Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before the US Congress, Facebook has issued an advisory to all its users reminding them they control which apps they want to share their information with.

In the advisory, Facebook directed users to the Apps and Website section of their settings, where they can see the platforms they have previously used Facebook to log into. “You can also remove the ones you don’t want connected to Facebook anymore,” read the advisory titled ‘Protecting your information.’ The move was made after Zuckerberg sat through hours of questioning about the social network’s failure to protect the data of millions of its users, as well as its role in Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The session was held after Facebook disclosed that 87 million users’ data could have been compromised as a result of the data breach.
