Earlier this week it was discovered the Facebook iOS app would activate your iPhone camera in the background for some users without them knowing, causing a privacy violation.

The company told The Verge at the time, “we have seen no evidence of photos or videos being uploaded due to this bug.”

Facebook said a fix would be released in the App Store and it arrived yesterday, according to a statement to The Verge. I guess if you’re an avid Facebook user, this comes as good news. Apple should introduce a notification in the status bar to let users know when apps that are actively using your camera.
