Facebook collecting data from Zoom without user permission

Video conferencing services company Zoom Communications said that it updated its app on Friday after discovering the Facebook SDK (Software Development Kit) was collecting users’ data from all iOS devices.

Zoom CEO Eric Yuan said in a blog post the company didn’t realize Facebook was grabbing data after the “Login with Facebook” option was added to the app and stressed the Facebook SDK was removed from the app shortly after the company discovered the incident. Yang added that Facebook collected information about users’ devices, such as OS type, device model and type, time zone, location, disk space.

According to reports, Facebook collected data even from users who don’t have a Facebook account.
