Many Samsung Phone Users Can’t Delete the Facebook App

The Infinite Brief
On certain Samsung Electronics Co. smartphones, users aren’t allowed to delete the Facebook app.

Many Android phone users have begun to question Samsung’s deal to sell phones with a permanent version of Facebook

Samsung said it provides a pre-installed Facebook app on selected models with options to disable it, and once it’s disabled, the app is no longer running.

A Facebook spokesperson said the disabled version of the app acts like it’s been deleted, so it doesn’t continue collecting data or sending information back to Facebook.
