Mark Zukerberg apologizes for Facebook privacy issue

1 Mins read

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took out full-page ads in several British and American newspapers Sunday to apologize for a “breach of trust” in the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

“You may have heard about a quiz app built by a university researcher that leaked Facebook data of millions of people in 2014,” said the ads signed by Zuckerberg, referring to the political consultancy company accused of manipulating Facebook data during the 2016 US election.

Zuckerberg assured that of no such data breach in future as Facebook had changed the rules.

“We’re also investigating every single app that had access to large amounts of data before we fixed this. We expect there are others,” he wrote.

“And when we find them, we will ban them and tell everyone affected.”

Zuckerberg continues that Facebook has already stopped apps like this from gaining access to so much information and now it’s limiting the data apps get when users sign-in using Facebook. The company is also investigating every single app that had access to significant amounts of data before this was fixed. Facebook expects that there will be others and that when it finds them, it will ban them and tell all affected users.

He signs off the apologetic note by promising to “do better” for you.

“We have a responsibility to protect your information. If we can’t we don’t deserve it,” he said.
