Information concerning data collection by company Epic Games from Steam caused the dissonance in the gaming community. The head of Epic Games Tim Sweeney also participated in the dialogue on Reddit. The head explained that the application does not load the data from Steam, if the user does not import friends list. The application Epic Games Store only allows you to download friends list from Steam. According to him, this process is a remnant of the "hasty implementation of social opportunity" in the early days of Fortnite. Sweeney takes full responsibility for the confusion and adds that the company will correct the error soon. He explained that Epic does not use the Steam API (application programming interface) and working on minimizing the number of third-party applications due to problems with security and privacy. Sweeney also refers to the article that explains that iOS collects user data and sends it to Facebook, which are then used for advertising purposes.
