New York. Information about the data of more than 500 million Facebook users is available on a website of hackers. This information appears to be several years old, but it raises questions about the security of the detailed information that Facebook and other social media sites collect.

According to this website, phone numbers, Facebook IDs, full names, places, dates of birth and email addresses of people from 106 countries are available online.
For many years, questions have been raised on Facebook regarding the security of people’s information. The social media company had in 2018 shut down user accounts by phone numbers after it was revealed that the political company Cambridge Analytica had obtained the information of 87 million Facebook users without their knowledge or consent. .
