Facebook says these Chrome extensions steal your personal data — delete them now

Facebook is suing the maker of four Google Chrome browser extensions, claiming that the extensions “scraped,” or harvested information from, Facebook user profiles, and also collected personal information not related to Facebook.

“If the user visited the Facebook website, the browser extensions were programmed to scrape their name, user ID, gender, relationship status, age group and other information related to their account,” Facebook said in an official post.
