Facebook admitted it has not determined what personal user information may have been misused by Rankwave, a South Korean company which offers apps to consumers and businesses.
On Thursday, the company updated its platform policies and said apps with minimal utility, such as personality quizzes, “may not be permitted on the platform.”
Facebook’s CEO defended the company’s actions after terror attacks including the recent mosque attacks in New Zealand that were livestreamed on the social media site.
The disclosure comes as part of a lawsuit filed by Washington D.C.’s Attorney General Karl Racine, who is suing the social media giant for “ongoing unlawful trade practices.”
The D.C. Attorney General Office is suing Facebook claiming the social media giant failed to safeguard users’ data and improperly shared information, including with the political research firm Cambridge Analytica during the 2016 presidential election.
