Ha sido New Scientist la que ha publicado una investigación que revela que una aplicación llamada myPersonality obtuvo datos de seis millones de usuarios que utilizaron la aplicación con la cual se buscaba obtener una predicción de su personalidad a través del famoso Facebook Login. "Contamos con grandes equipos de expertos internos y externos que trabajan arduamente para investigar estas aplicaciones lo más rápido posible". De hecho, dijo que todas las aplicaciones a las que se les dio acceso a los datos antes de Facebook cambiaron su política en 2015, así como aquellas que demuestran "comportamiento sospechoso" y serían auditadas.

Facebook ha anunciado que informará a los usuarios cuyos datos se encuentren en propiedad de terceros a través del mismo apartado web de ayuda desde el que ya advierte a quienes han sido víctimas de la filtración de datos a Cambridge Analytica. Los apps investigados que fallen la auditoría estarían prohibidos en la plataforma de Facebook.

Una de las aplicaciones suspendidas hoy es la protagonista de una nueva investigación periodística que alertó de una filtración masiva de información que habría dejado expuestos numerosos datos personales de tres millones de usuarios.

Más de 280 personas de 150 instituciones diferentes, incluso Facebook, Google, Microsoft y Yahoo, se beneficiaron de esta base de datos. La primera consiste en una revisión exhaustiva para identificar todas las aplicaciones que tenían acceso a una gran cantidad de datos antes del 2014.

A las personas afectadas por esas 200 apps u otras les darán una notificación en su cuenta de Facebook, igual a lo que pasó con la empresa de big data 'Cambridge Analytica'.
