Once again, private Facebook data was exposed through third party apps, after the developers stored user data on Amazon’s servers in a way that allowed it to be downloaded by the public.

To see which apps are using your login information, and to stop it, compete the following steps.

1) Go to your Facebook home page
2) On the top right, click the small down arrow
3) Click settings from drop down menu
4) On the left-hand side of page, click APPS and WEBSITES
From there you can see which apps are using your information and you can remove which ones you want.
