On January 09, 2019 Bloomberg reported that Facebook has got into an unknown number of agreements with Android phone makers. This agreement not only pre-installed the Facebook app on mobile phones but also make it undeletable.
A Facebook spokesperson told Bloomberg that a disabled version of the app doesn’t continue collecting data or sending information back to the company.
Samsung said it provides a pre-installed Facebook app on selected phone models with an option to disable it and once disabled, the app is no longer running.
Facebook declined to provide a list of the partners with which it has deals for permanent apps. Saying that those agreements vary by region and type. There is no complete list available online. Consumers may not know if Facebook is pre-loaded unless they ask a customer service representative when they purchase a phone.
Facebook you disappointed once again. Not cool!
