The latest iOS update shows how Facebook is following you. There are many.

Knowing that Facebook is tracking everything you do is one thing, but actually seeing it? Uff.

Apple officially launched iOS 14.3 on Monday, releasing an update to the App Store that promises to change the way you view your downloads forever. Now when you go to an app, Apple offers a detailed list of how developers can handle your data[.]”And when it comes to Facebook’s app family, oh man, they ever care.

Facebook, of course, owns both Instagram and WhatsApp (as well as Oculus and numerous other branded services). But let’s just look at the main Facebook app first. For your convenience, you will find user data here that Facebook has confirmed to Apple. “Privacy practices can include handling[.]””

Fair warning, it’s a lot. From (hopefully) obvious ones like your phone number and contacts to raised eyebrows like your “exact location,” “confidential information,” “audio” and “emails or text messages”, Facebook has a lot to offer of your pie.

Facebook apparently wasn’t particularly friendly when Apple pulled its pants all the way down. According to Bloomberg, Facebook has a full-page ad in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Washington Post Apple for the gall to highlight what Facebook does with user data.

Of course, Facebook didn’t frame it that way. Instead, the company expressed its opposition as a bold stance in favor of “small businesses everywhere”.

Facebook has a long history of being less than fully available. Therefore, you can judge the accuracy of the ad yourself.

If you want to see what certain apps are doing with your data, simply go to the App Store after updating to iOS 13.4 and search for the app in question (e.g. Instagram) Then scroll down to the “App Privacy” section and click “View Details”.

You may not like what you see, but hey, in the future there is no way you can say that Facebook didn’t warn you. Maybe this time you should finally listen.
