I suffer from it, so now there's a thread.
Can they be making the connection by the email/phone details you provided when setting up the account?
https://gizmodo.com/how-facebook-outs-sex-workers-1818861596Because Facebook insists on concealing the methods and data it uses to link one user to another, Leila is not able to find out how the network exposed her or take steps to prevent it from happening again.
Facebook reset logins for millions of customers last night as it dealt with a data breach that may have exposed nearly 50 million accounts. The breach was caused by an exploit of three bugs in Facebook's code that were introduced with the addition of a new video uploader in July of 2017. Facebook patched the vulnerabilities on Thursday, and it revoked access tokens for a total of 90 million users
In a call with press today, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the attack targeted the "view as" feature, "code that allowed people to see what other people were seeing when they viewed their profile," Zuckerberg said. The attackers were able to use this feature, combined with the video uploader feature, to harvest access tokens.
"The attackers did try to query our APIs—but we do not yet know if any private information was exposed," Zuckerberg said. The attackers used the profile retrieval API, which provides access to the information presented in a user's profile page, but there's no evidence yet that Facebook messages or other private data was viewed. No credit card data or other information was exposed, according to Facebook.
I love/hate Facebook.
Most of my family members and friends are on it so it is the primary way in which I stay in touch with everyone...
