FACEBOOK has failed to protect your privacy AGAIN – as the company reveals a new security blunder that exposed your unposted photos.
The social network gave app makers too much access to the photos of up to 6.8million users in yet another privacy gaffe.
“We have fixed the issue but, because of this bug, some third-party apps may have had access to a broader set of photos than usual for 12 days between September 13 to September 25, 2018.”
When apps connect to your Facebook – like Tinder or Spotify – they get permission to access some information.
For instance, Tinder can take some of your photos to populate your dating profile with.
But Facebook accidentally gave some app makers additional access to photos they shouldn’t have been allowed to see.
This included photos you’d never actually posted to Facebook.
