Attack scenario

Summary

  • The who can look me up functionality does only work for people that have no access to a network you have or had access to.
  • Facebook does not make this information public and thus is violating the GDPR law in Europe.
  • Even if you set your privacy settings right, their might be some unmentioned exceptions that overwrite your settings.
