10 million Facebook users are under threat

10 million Facebook users' login information may have been stolen, Meta said. The company said this information in a report on Friday, October 7.

According to reports, Facebook account information may have been stolen due to security issues with some apps downloaded from Apple and Google's app stores. They identified more than 400 malware apps on Android and iOS this year. Apps steal login information of internet users. Apple and Google have been notified to remove these malicious apps.

Facebook says photo editors, mobile games or health tracker apps mainly steal data.

Apple says 45 of the 400 problematic apps have been removed from the App Store.

On the other hand, a spokesperson for Alphabet said that Google has removed all harmful apps from the store.

Cybercriminals know how popular such apps are, said David Agranovich, director of Global Threat Disruption at Mater. They therefore use such themes to steal account information of Facebook users by cheating.

Meta said it will advise users about this and help identify problematic apps that request data from Facebook or other apps.
