The company is now informing users if their data has been compromised in Cambridge Analytica breach or not.
How to find out if Facebook shared data with Cambridge Analytica?
Facebook has started notifying millions of users that were affected by the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal. One of the notices will tell Facebook users whether their data may have been shared with Cambridge Analytica, Facebook’s chief technology officer Mike Schroepfer said in a blog post.
What will the notice say?
The social networking giant will be sending a notification to users’ Facebook News Feed starting today. In case a user’s profile was obtained by Cambridge Analytica, the notification will tell him/her how Facebook has banned a site called “This Is Your Digital Life”, as it shared the user’s data without his/her consent with Cambridge Analytica.
You can tap on the link to learn how you are affected by the breach. However, if you are not affected then you will get a notification which discusses a new feature which enables the Facebook users to control which apps can access their personal data.
Facebook also announced that it has banned another data analytics firm called CubeYou for improper handling of users’ data that they received from personality quizzes.
What else will Facebook tell me?
The message will include a link titled “See How You’re Affected” that will provide people with more information on what happened during the breach.
Affected Facebook users will also be informed how to prevent other apps and websites from accessing their information.
Recently, Mark Zuckerberg met US lawmakers to apologise for the social network’s misuse of its members’ data. “We didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake, he said in written remarks released by the US House Energy and Commerce Committee on Monday. It was my mistake, and I’m sorry.
