So to avoid accidentally allowing of your phone numbers and addresses to the third party Facebook apps go to your profile from the top-right corner of your Facebook account screen then click on the “Edit profile” button.
Choose “Contact information” from the menu at the left side and click on it.
Delete any information if there in the field “Mobile Phone” and “Address”.
Note that, if you have kept any phone number in the “Other phone” field, Facebook will automatically copy that into the “Mobile Phone” field though the “Mobile Phone” field is still blank. After deleting those field information click on “Save Changes” button.
While this step of Facebook is on the purpose of increasing more openness, some people may not welcome this policy.
