Info we collect in seamless facebook connect
In the new version of ROP we save some info from users trying to connect their Facebook account to the plugin via our "Sign into Facebook" button. The info we use includes:
Site URL, WordPress Admin Email, Facebook Email
Why we save this:
To prevent our Facebook app from being misused for malicious purposes, we need to ensure the websites being connected via our app are not malicious websites. Such websites include:
- Websites that have been blacklisted by external services as spammy
- Websites sharing posts containing malware
When a connecting pattern is noticed we might blacklist such websites from connecting via our Facebook app in the future. Such website domains might include free domains received from free web hosting which sometimes can contain embedded malicious code.
If a blacklisted email address is trying to connect their website via our Facebook app we might also redirect the connection to prevent misuse of our app.
All users are free to create their own Facebook apps and go through the Facebook review process which we provide documentation for: See here
