Facebook reminds developers deadline for app reviews is less than a month away
App developers wanting to keep access to a number of APIs will need to submit their apps for review by August 1.
Facebook is reminding developers that in order to keep access to a number of APIs, the app review deadline is August 1.
Developers wanting to retain their access to any of the following APIs for existing apps will need to submit their apps for review and “re-request” permission to use the APIs:
- Facebook Login outside of email and default (any apps or websites that allow users to sign in using their Facebook account).
- Pages API.
- Groups API.
- Events API.
- Messenger API.
- Instagram API.
- Business Manager API.
After the Cambridge Analytica news story broke — when Facebook revealed it had suspended the analytics company for improperly employing user data gathered with an app — Facebook temporarily shut down its app review process to perform an extensive audit of all the apps on the platform.
