Find Out If Your Facebook Data Was Compromised Using This Tool

April 10, 2018

Was your Facebook data compromised? There’s a new tool to find out.

Facebook has launched a new online help page that focuses on user data breaches associated with the ongoing Cambridge Analytica situation. The tool allows you to determine whether your personal data was shared with the company for political purposes. (Via The Next Web’s Matt Navarra)

The tool lets you know whether you or any of your Facebook friends logged into Cambridge Analytica’s quiz app, “This Is Your Digital.” If the answer is yes, Facebook details the type of information that was shared, including public profile, page likes, birthday, current city, and more.

Later today, April 10, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will testify before the United States Congress to discuss the Cambridge Analytica data breach. His testimony begins at 2:15 p.m. PDT.

To date, Facebook says that 87 million people have been affected by the breach. Of those, 70 million are located in the U.S.
