Facebook launches a dangerous protection app for iPhone



 Network security is an issue that is often not taken seriously by the users themselves . Not only in the case, for example, of publishing photographs of children in social networks without any shame, but by the monitoring that companies do to us to track our habits.

In many occasions we have had VPN applications, which are a great resource to protect our data traffic, and which consists in the creation of a virtual private network that makes our internet browsing much safer . There are hundreds of VPN programs in the App Store.

And Facebook, the giant of social networks, has launched its own VPN service called Protect . The problem comes with something very ambiguous, Facebook uses the service to collect data from its users . And for the good functioning of the service, it analyzes this information with the objective of " improving Facebook's products and services ". In other words, the wolf disguised as a lamb .
