Facebook secretly turns on the camera of the smartphone when the user is watching a news feed: video

It seems that the social network Facebook again caught in a scandal. Claimed by the user who noticed the strange behavior of the iOS app. During scrolling the news feed on the iPhone app includes a front facing camera.

Moreover, the app includes frontalka secretly, without the knowledge of user.

This drew the attention of designer Joshua Maddux. This he complained to his page on the social network Twitter. However, Maddox suggests that this is a bug, not a secret operation of spying on users.

The designer also added that he found the same problem on the iPhone five with the installed version of the iOS operating system 13.2.2. While smartphones running on iOS 12, such problem was not. Besides, didn’t notice the problem on devices running on iOS 13.1.3.

However, one of the commentators with the iPhone 7 Plus managed to show the problem on the iOS 12.4.1.

How to protect yourself? While the company did not respond to this issue. So when will fix it, is still unknown. IPhone users, we recommend not to consent to access to the camera when the app is installed Facebook.
