Zoom updates iOS app to stop it from sending device data to Facebook

Video conferencing service Zoom has updated its iOS app to prevent sending unnecessary device data to Facebook. The company was notified earlier this week that the Facebook SDK for iOS was collecting device information that was not needed to provide its services, the official blog notes.

The SDK did not include information and activities related to meetings, but about devices such as mobile operating system type, version, device time zone, device operating system, device model and carrier, screen size, processor cores, and disk space. So, the company removed the Facebook SDK in iOS and configured the feature that allows users to still use the login with Facebook through their browser. Users must update to the latest version of the Zoom app. (ANI)
