How to turn off Facebook recording call and SMS details

Now, that Facebook has explained how it collects this data with Messenger and Facebook Lite, it also tells people what they can do if they don’t want this data collected.

The first thing to avoid giving Facebook your call and SMS details is to deny the Facebook apps access to your contacts when you are installing these apps. The second way is to turn off the permission from Facebook settings. To do this:

On Facebook Messenger: Go to settings > People > Turn off Contact Sync. To delete previously uploaded contacts, go to this page, log into your account and delete contacts.

On Facebook Lite: Go to Settings > Turn off Continuous Contacts Upload. Also turn off Sync Your Call and Text History.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg married Priscilla Chan today, two days after the social networking site had the biggest IPO in history and five days after the bride graduated from medical school.

Zuckerberg, 28, and Chan, 27, who met nine years ago at Harvard, married in a small ceremony in the backyard of his home in Palo Alto, Calif. Chan graduated from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, on Monday, the same day Zuckerberg turned 28.

Facebook Anonymous Next Target on January 28

Hacktivist group Anonymous may have Facebook in its cross hairs for an attack at midnight January 28, no time zone specified.

This potentially makes the social network the latest victim in Anonymous’ path of destruction since file-sharing service Megaupload was raided by the federal government.

A facebook spokesperson told us via email:

We expect Anonymous just like we expect any other attack on any other day. Due to our size, we face the same threats as seen everywhere else on the web, but we have developed partnerships, backend systems, and protocols to confront the full range of security challenges we face. Facebook has always been committed to protecting our users’ information, and we will continue to innovate and work tirelessly to defend this data.

We recall the hacktivist group’s previous threats against Facebook not bearing fruit, and thus question whether this latest one will pan out.
