Facebook Bulk App Remover

Listen To This Article:

From now on, you can bulk remove apps that have access to your account on Facebook. Furthermore, every post the app has made on your behalf will also be removed.

Previously Facebook did not have such an option to remove apps. Then why did they feel the need to include this feature now? Well, some of you might have guessed it already. Yes, the recent Cambridge Analytica Scandal has hit Facebook hard.

Facebook and Cambridge Analytica

A couple of years ago, a new app was launched on Facebook-This is Your Digital Life. The app was primarily a personality quiz, which was downloaded by 270,000 users. This app secretly, collected every information it could find on the user profile. And shockingly, it also collected user data of anyone on the friend list of the actual user. In other words, the app not only tracked the online interactions of the people who downloaded the app, but also all the users on their friend lists.

Although the figure was estimated to be 50 Million users at first, Chief Technology Officer of Facebook Mike Schroepfer confirmed that data of 87 Million users were abused by Cambridge Analytica.
