Facebook is unarguably the biggest social media network on the internet but Android users who have Facebook app installed on their device — a majority of you — need to reassess whether keeping the official app on their smartphone is a worthy choice or not.
Although there are a number of other reasons to ditch the Facebook app like it eating into your storage and data, draining the battery and making other apps, as well as the device sluggish, privacy concerns surrounding the app, remain the most pressing.
Every app requires a certain degree of permissions from the user to access either your contacts (in the case of apps like Truecaller), images (in the case of photo-sharing apps like Instagram) and the likes.
Similarly, Facebook also requires certain permissions from your device in order to be able to function to its optimum level but these permissions account for almost all of the permissions that any of the apps need.
