Just a few short days before CEO Mark Zuckerberg does the ‘perp’ walk to Washington to testify to Congress, Facebook says the information of up to 87 million people, mostly in the U.S. may have been improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica, considerably more than the originally discussed 50 million.

As AP reports, this coming Monday, all Facebook users will receive a notice on their Facebook feeds with a link to see what apps they use and what information they have shared with those apps.

They’ll have a chance to delete apps they no longer want.

Users who had their data shared with Cambridge Analytica will be told of that within that notice.

Facebook says most of the affected users are in the U.S..

Facebook confirmed that apps accessing events or groups APIs will lose access today and will have to be individually re-approved each time they attempt to access information like check-ins, photos, likes, posts, and videos.

Furthermore, Facebook will no longer allow apps to ask for access to personal information like religion or political bias.
