Facebook App Check Privacy Settings on iPhone
Facebook offers integrated apps to expand the Facebook app functions. As soon as you activate or use one of these additional apps the app gains access to some of 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.
