The Facebook software should be removed from the iOS device quickly, according to the security expert.
According to the researcher, the Facebook application continues to collect data through the accelerometer. Even if users choose not to track third-party application tracking, this information is collected. The user’s position is used by the accelerometer.
Facebook is constantly collecting accelerometer statistics, according to cybersecurity experts Talal Haj Bakry and Tommy Mysk.
Even if you don’t allow Facebook to track your whereabouts, it still can. It supposedly does this by monitoring the phone’s accelerometer and connecting with other users who have experienced the same frequency of vibration.
Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, according to Tommy Mysk, are all impacted. WhatsApp, on the other hand, lets you turn this option off.
Experts also looked at TikTok, WeChat, iMessage, Telegram, and Signal. User activity is not tracked by these apps using the accelerometer. There is currently no method to turn off accelerometer tracking on Facebook. To avoid being tracked, you must uninstall this app from your device.
Facebook can use this information to track where a user has been at any given time. They can also learn more about habits and behaviors using this information.
According to the analysis of the business news website, Facebook can connect users with people they don’t know. Facebook, it is claimed, can tell whether you are lying down, resting, or moving when using an app based on accelerometer data.
