Facebook App – Check Privacy Settings on iPhone
Have you checked your Facebook Privacy settings on iPhone recently? Facebook offers integrated apps to expand the Facebook app features. As soon as you activate or use one of these additional apps the app gains access to your Facebook data. The same happens, when you use your Facebook-Login for websites or apps. Sometimes these apps and websites only get basic data like age and sex, some request more extensive data though. We show you how to check privacy rights and access as well as deactivate apps and websites.
