Teamblind asked more than 1,300 Android users if they had given consent to Facebook to access their call and message log . 89%, practically the majority of the surveyed population, he answered that no .

Evidently, Facebook collects your call history and messages . In fact, you can access them downloading the information that Facebook has about you, from the web itself. This is a sign that when we accept the user’s terms and conditions, we directly mark the box of I read , and we started using the application.

On the one hand, it is logical that users do not want to read pages and pages of text before installing a app .
