Facebook revealed as many as 100 software developers may have illicitly had access to user data, CNBC reports. The social media company said it no longer allows developers to gather the information, which included names, profile pictures and members of certain groups on the platform. Facebook said in a blog post that at least 11 developers accessed user data within the last 60 days. “Although we’ve seen no evidence of abuse, we will ask them to delete any member data they may have retained and we will conduct audits to confirm that it has been deleted,” Facebook Director of Platform Partnerships Konstantinos Papamiltiadis wrote in the blog post. Meanwhile, Facebook also announced it plans to expand encryption within its Messenger app.
