How to check if your Facebook data was shared with Cambridge Analytica

0

Are you one of the millions of Facebook users whose information might have been obtained without permission and used in creating effective propaganda, including fake news?

Facebook has started notifying up to 87 million that their Facebook information was improperly obtained by Cambridge Analytica.

If you haven’t seen the prompt in your News Feed, you can still check it by going to Facebook’s Help Center. It now has a section that tells you whether you or a friend were affected by this scandal.

Affected users will be prompted to change app settings. You may also want to review the list of apps and websites that are logged in with your Facebook account.

Facebook is now implementing changes to prevent other Facebook apps from improperly obtaining data again in the future.
