Facebook shared user data with developers it shouldn't have — again

According to the company, at least a few thousand developers were able to access some personal details from “inactive” users who hadn’t used their apps in more than 90 days.

Facebook didn’t disclose how long the “issue” had been around before it was fixed, or how many users may have been impacted. The company said it affected “approximately 5,000 developers” from “the last several months.” Facebook also didn’t specify exactly what data may have been improperly shared, but said the users had previously authorized the apps to receive the data in question.

Facebook noted it fixed the issue the day after it was discovered and it plans to “keep investigating.”
