Why does Quizlet ask for permission to view my Facebook profile?

When you sign up for Quizlet using Facebook, we ask permission to view your public profile. This is the default permission option required by all apps and websites that support Facebook login. 

What information does Quizlet access?

Quizlet is able to see your name, profile picture, age range, gender, language, country and other public information.

 We do not access or request access to other personal information like status updates, interests, check-ins or current location.

Why does Quizlet request access to this information?

We request access to your email address so we can communicate with you if you contact us with questions or problems and send you password reset and username reminder emails. We require access to your birthday to ensure that your account has the correct permissions for your age. We request access to your friends list so you can see the Quizlet profiles of anyone you're connected to on Facebook from your Settings page.
