Facebook will soon send reminders to users to shut off apps

Facebook's reputation has taken a massive hit in the past week, after the revelation that it allowed Cambridge Analytica, a political consultancy working for the Donald Trump campaign, to wrongfully harvest the profiles of 50 million Facebook users without their permission to identify and target potential voters during the 2016 United States election. Its CEO, Alexander Nix, said in undercover footage that the company was responsible for much of the Trump campaign's activity. People are expressly asked if they want to give permission to upload their contacts from their phone - it's explained right there in the apps when you get started.
The Verge website reported that some Twitter users said they found months or years of call history data in their downloadable Facebook data file.
"During our time leading the Commerce Committee, several questions about Facebook's responsibilities and obligations to users have arisen even as the company's reach and importance have grown". Mozilla last week said it would remove its ads over concerns Facebook's default privacy settings are not strong enough to protect user data from third parties.
Many other users reported unease at the data they discovered being logged, including the contacts of their address books, their calendars, and their friends' birthdays.
The firm has responded by saying the storing of this information is an integral part of Messenger and Facebook Lite, but is not done unless users agree or "opt-in" when the apps are installed. However, the update didn't affect Android apps (such as Facebook) that had already been granted permission by the user to access their call and text data.
Facebook has dealt with the FTC on privacy issues in the past. "This helps you find and stay connected with the people you care about, and provide you with a better experience on Facebook", the company notes in the post. The users we talked to only performed such reviews after the recent revelations about Cambridge Analytica's use of Facebook data.
Ars Technica writer Sean Gallagher picked up the story and confirmed that his own Facebook data archive contained call, SMS, and MMS metadata from an Android device he used in 2015 and 2016.
However, the scandal seems unlikely to fade as users express their shock about the sorts of data they found in their Facebook downloads. It's also investigating every app that had access to large amounts of data.
Memories of two 20th-century totalitarian surveillance states make privacy issues especially sensitive in Germany, where competition authorities have since a year ago been probing the social network's use of data from partner websites. "As a result, we have made a decision to ask Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify before our committee", they said.
