Facebook Exposed 87 Million Users to Cambridge Analytica

April 06, 2018

Facebook now says the data firm Cambridge Analytica gained unauthorized access to up to 87 million users' data, mainly in the United States. This figure is far higher than the 50 million users that were previously reported. Facebook's chief technology officer Mike Schroepfer shared this figure at the end of a lengthy--and somewhat unrelated--blog post Wednesday that laid out a slew of changes Facebook is making to restrict access to user data.
