Facebook fixes iPhone bug that turned on cell cameras

Early this month, some Facebook clients started to see a glitch when they were utilizing the iOS application. Clients shared on Twitter that when they were watching videos or taking a look at photographs, their cameras were activated behind the Facebook application, CNET reports. Facebook has recognized the bug and says it is presenting a fix to Apple today.

A few clients said that when they saw a video in full screen and afterwards shrank it back, the application format would move somewhat to one side. In the space on the left, you could see the telephone’s camera had been activated. CNET says it had the option to imitate the issue.

Facebook says the bug was presented when it fixed another issue – the Facebook iOS application erroneously propelling in landscape mode – in version 244. “We have seen no evidence of photos or video being uploaded due to this bug,” a spokesperson told Engadget.

Obviously, this doesn’t support Facebook’s picture of why the cameras kept opening. The organization has multiplied down on its messages about protection and security, and a bug like this could undermine the organization’s endeavours to improve its notoriety.

Facebook’s full explanation is beneath:

“We recently discovered that version 244 of the Facebook iOS app would incorrectly launch in landscape mode. In fixing that issue last week in v246 (launched on November 8th) we inadvertently introduced a bug that caused the app to partially navigate to the camera screen adjacent to News Feed when users tapped on photos. We have seen no evidence of photos or videos being uploaded due to this bug. We’re submitting the fix for this to Apple today.”
