Amid the ongoing row over the Cambridge Analytica and Facebook and how much of it has impacted the social profiles of users around the world, it has now emerged that nearly 5.6 lakh plus users in India may have been impacted.

It has emerged that all of this could be due to 335 people in India installing the app, mydigitallife.

Facebook said it is investigating the specific number of people whose information was accessed by the app.

The data obtained by mydigitallife was later shared with Cambridge Analytica, which was another violation of Facebook’s terms and conditions for app developers.
