If you are an iPhone user, you are advised to delete the Facebook app from your device asap. Why? Because Mark Zuckerberg owned company is invading your privacy by selling your sensitive data and tracking every single movement of yours.


How is Facebook doing so? Know here in detail

Security experts have caught the social media giant Facebook “secretly" harvesting sensitive data of iPhone users without their consent, and the only way to prevent this very invasive tracking is to delete the application.

The Facebook app, according to the experts, continues to collect data via the accelerometer. This information is collected even if users opt out of third-party app tracking. The accelerometer measures the user's position.

According to cyber security specialists Talal Haj Bakry and Tommy Mysk, Facebook collects accelerometer data all the time.

Facebook can track your whereabouts even if you don't permit them to do so. It reportedly accomplishes this by monitoring the accelerometer on your phone and linking you with other users who have experienced the same vibration frequency.

According to Tommy Mysk, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are all compromised. WhatsApp, on the other hand, allows you to disable this feature.

This information can be used by Facebook to trace where a user has been at any particular time. They can also use this information to learn about their habits and behaviour.

According to a media report, Facebook can connect users with people they don't know. Based on accelerometer data, Facebook claims to be able to identify if you're lying down, resting, or moving while using an app.
