NAKED SECURITY: Some Android apps are secretly sharing your data with Facebook

"Android apps have been secretly sharing usage data with Facebook, even when users are logged out of the social network – or don’t have an account at all. The investigators found that 61% of the apps tested automatically tell Facebook that a user has opened them. This accompanies other basic event data such as an app being closed, along with information about their device and suspected location based on language and time settings. Apps have been doing this even when users don’t have a Facebook account, the report said."
