Latest iOS update shows all the ways Facebook tracks you. There are a lot.

Knowing Facebook tracks everything you do is one thing, but actually seeing it? Oof.

Apple officially launched iOS 14.3 Monday, and with it came an update to the App Store that promises to forever change the way you look at your downloads. Now, when you pull up an app, Apple offers a detailed list of "how developers may handle your data[.]" And when it comes to Facebook's family of apps, oh, man, do they ever handle it.

Facebook, of course, owns both Instagram and WhatsApp (as well as Oculus and scores of other name-brand services). But let's look at just the main Facebook app first. Here, for your viewing pleasure, is user data which Facebook confirmed to Apple its "privacy practices may include handling[.]"

Fair warning: It's a lot. From the (hopefully) obvious like your phone number and contacts, to the more eyebrow raising like your "precise location," "sensitive info," "audio data," and "emails or text messages," Facebook has its fingers in a lot of your pies.
