"We had a feature we could look up people by name or email, and that was important for finding people", Sandberg said to Bloomberg. These included limited the retention period for Marks messages in Messenger.

According to Facebook, users will be able to use the unsend feature in the next few months, but didn't explain how the feature would work on Messenger.

The company apologised for not doing so sooner. "But we wanted to put out the maximum we felt that it could be as soon as we had that analysis done", Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg told CNN.

"I'm not going to sit here and say that we're not going to find more", she said, "because we are".

Cambridge Analytica, which is among the 30, denies breaching the Data Protection Act and said it had deleted information gathered by research firm GSR.

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, in charge of protecting privacy rights of individuals, said in a statement that it would investigate, along with their counterpart in British Columbia, whether Facebook and AggregateIQ gave unauthorised access to users' Facebook data.

Facebook is trying to strengthen its system ahead of this year's United States midterm elections as well as upcoming elections around the world.

"From now on, every advertiser who wants to run political or issue ads will need to be verified". Facebook's chief technology officer, Mike Schroepfer, said in a blog post published on Wednesday that given the scale and sophistication of the activity they have seen, they believe most people on Facebook could have had their public profile scraped in this way due to which they have now disabled that feature. "There's a lot of hard work we have to do to make it harder for nation states like Russian Federation to do election interference", he said.

Facebook will require every such advertiser to confirm their identity and location. This is similar to how Airbnb and other services verify addresses. Additionally, the tech giant reads also admitted to reading chats when they are flagged to moderators and makes sure that the content abides to the company's rules.

A Facebook spokeswoman in Australia told Reuters that the company will be "fully responsive" to the investigation.

The tool was discovered by TechCrunch, which noticed a discrepancy between emailed receipts of Facebook messages being received (which Facebook can not retract) and the actual contents of Facebook inboxes.

The requirement is created to clamp down on users with fake accounts running Facebook pages. Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify before a Congressional committee on the scandal next week.

Facebook is also facing an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission in what has become its worst privacy crisis in its 14-year history.
