Facebook revealed that it is informing over 800,000 members about a bug that can temporarily unblock the unwanted connections at Messenger and the social network.
Facebook announced that a bug may result in the unblocking of unwanted people on its messaging app and social media platform.
Erin Egan, Facebook chief privacy officer, said that the ability to block someone is vital. However, blocking a person prevents him/her from connecting as a friend, seeing posts in a blocker’s profile, or sending messages. In addition, blocking also automatically unfriend the person.
Last month, a bug privacy setting bug affected several users and made their posts public without their consent. The news denoted the most recent in a progression of security humiliations for the company, which has confronted a firestorm over the capturing of individual information on a huge number of users and all the more as of late for exposures on data leakage with smartphone manufacturers.
