It is not like the app is getting information that some random hacker can access, at least if you have any privacy controls set on your Facebook profile.

Right, because Facebook would never change their privacy policies on a whim without giving users warning ahead of time. At least they probably won't. Anymore. Well, only if they really need to.


No, it's getting information some random website can access by offering you a picture of a lollipop. Stranger danger?
