May 14 (UPI) -- Facebook said Monday it's suspended about 200 apps following an investigation into the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
Facebook said the investigation involves two phases -- identifying apps that have access to user data, and then conducting interviews, requesting information and performing audits.
Ime Archibong, vice president of product partnerships at Facebook, said Monday the investigation is in "full swing."
"To date, thousands of apps have been investigated and around 200 have been suspended -- pending a thorough investigation into whether they did in fact misuse any data," Facebook said in a statement. "Where we find evidence that these or other apps did misuse data, we will ban them and notify people."
Facebook told TechCrunch it plans to provide more details about banned apps after each case-by-case investigation.
Earlier this year, it was reported Cambridge Analytica had accessed data of as many as 87 million Facebook users.
Last month, Facebook began showing a link at the top of users' News Feeds allowing them to see what applications they use and whether their information may have been improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica.
It's unclear whether Facebook will publish a public list of every app it suspends or deems to have misused user data, or notify only affected individuals.
