Facebook Bug Causes Users' Cameras to Activate as They Scroll

Facebook Bug Causes Users' Cameras to Activate as They Scroll .

Facebook has recently come under fire after the discovery of a bug in their iOS app.

.

The bug, which has since been confirmed by Facebook, exposes a userโ€™s camera as they scroll through their Facebook feed.

.

According to Guy Rosen, Facebook's Vice President of Integrity, the bug is an "inadvertent" result of an update made by Facebook on Nov.

8.

In fixing that issue last week in v246 โ€” launched on November 8th โ€” we inadvertently introduced a bug that caused the app to partially navigate to the camera screen adjacent to News Feed when users tapped on photos.

Guy Rosen, Facebook's Vice President of Integrity, via Twitter.

To be affected, users must have previously granted the Facebook app access to their device's camera and microphone.

They must also be running the latest software, iOS 13.

.

There is reportedly "no evidenceโ€ that the bug is causing captured photos or videos to be uploaded to the internet.
