App Review

We review your app to ensure a high-quality Facebook experience across apps.

Beginning April 4, 2018, all apps, including those formerly approved, must undergo App Review in order to gain access to the Events API, Groups API, and Pages API. Apps accessing the Events API and Groups API will lose access and require review once App Review resumes. For apps using Pages API, review will be required once App Review resumes or access will be removed.

App Review Principles

In general, people must be aware that they are logging in and posting to Facebook. People should be able to control the information they share with your app or back to Facebook.

We review all platforms listed in your app settings tab. Always abide by our user data policies, Community Standards, Platform Policies, and Ad Guidelines.
