Full extent of Facebook’s secret data collecting revealed

Back in February, Facebook and Google were unceremoniously kicked off of Apple’s enterprise program, which was supposed to be used by companies to create apps that could be utilized internally by their employees. However, it wasn’t clear exactly how many users had their personal data collected by the companies when the news initially broke. Now, a Facebook letter to Sen.

The remainder of the users 187,000 whose data was collected were in India.
