Privacy implications of Instagram app (iOS)

Hey all.

I had to get Instagram for certain reasons. On iOS, I’m aware there’s a sandbox for apps: does that mean that Instagram shouldn’t have access to data outside itself?

(I’m at peace with the fact that it collects everything you do on it, but I don’t have a habit of using it)

This is 1 year old (which in this technological world is almost like prehistory) but is quite interesting, especially the part “faq for non-tech readers” : iOS Privacy: Instagram and Facebook can track anything you do on any website in their in-app browser · Felix Krause

Yes, Instagram shouldn’t. Also you have to limit permissions.
