Facebook blocks thousands of apps from accessing user data

California: In its latest efforts at combating privacy abuse of its users, Facebook announced that it has cut off API access for hundreds of thousands of inactive apps.

These apps have not submitted for Facebook’s app review process and hence, are facing the wrath of the tech giant who is still reeling out of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Mashable reported.

Facebook had given the deadline of August 1 for developers to get their apps reviewed. Now those who have missed it still have a chance to submit their apps for review. (ANI)
