Facebook comes with a so-called data abuse bounty program which according to the company is meant to protect the data of Facebook users. What amounts of people who can make reports can not be fully understood.
According to Facebook, the program was created to encourage people to make a report when apps collect user data and pass the data on to malicious parties. If that is the case, Facebook says it will remove the conscious app from the platform. In addition, it wants to carry out an audit and will, if necessary, initiate legal proceedings against the company behind the app or other parties.
Facebook promises that it will review all legitimate reports and that it will act quickly if there is a ‘credible threat’ for the user data. If the data is misused, it also informs the affected persons accordingly. Facebook announced the expansion of its bug bounty program in March, along with other measures .
