Instagram has been the most data privacy breach app

Cloud storage company pCloud has examined the applications whose data privacy policies have been raised recently. The company revealed detailed data in its research.


In the research shared by Kirşetin manager Ivan Dimitrov, Instagramrevealed that 79 percent of its users’ personal data, including search history, location, contacts and financial information, was collected and shared with third parties. Dimitrov noted in his statement: “Any information you agree to collect when registering for the application can be analyzed and even shared for their benefit. Everything from your search history, location, bank transaction details, contacts details, and fitness level can be valuable for apps to store, use and sell. “


The fact that Instagram, with more than a billion users, uses data to this extent causes concern, while the second application that shares personal data most is Instagram’s parent company. Facebook was recorded as. It is stated that the platform shares 57 percent of user data with third parties, including other companies associated with the company. Uber Eats, Deliveroo, LinkedIn, Trainline, YouTube, Duolingo, and eBay were also on the list, while Just Eat, Grubhub, and My McDonald were among the few apps that didn’t share any user data.
