Now it appears that the same security tokens could be used to access accounts of websites that use the “Facebook Login” feature.

This means that any third-party app that uses the “Facebook Login” feature could be at risk, including apps such as Instagram, Tinder, Airbnb and many others.

There are also indications that the EU may fine fb up to $1.63b for failing user privacy under the new rules now in place.

The biggest mistake a user can make nowadays is use their Facebook login credentials to sign in to other services or apps.
