Apps Get Into Facebook Photos – level 2

21-12-2018 15:00

Facebook is apologising because a bug allowed third party apps to get into millions of users’ photos without their permission in September. Apps could not usually get to these photos.

Facebook said that the bug let apps get to the photos that were posted on Facebook or only uploaded. Facebook said that it keeps uploaded photos in case the user wants to post them later. Facebook will tell all users who had this happen to them.

This is another privacy problem for the company this year.

Difficult words: bug (a problem that makes a program do something that people do not want), third party (a group/person other than the two group/people – Facebook and the user in this case), post (put on Facebook for your Facebook friends to see).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
