Last week, Facebook said 1.2 million users out of 87 million affected by the data breach were in the Philippines.

The British firm is currently at the center of a data-breach scandal for allegedly harvesting personal data linked to US President Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

Created in 2013, Cambridge Analytica markets itself as a source of consumer research, targeted advertising and other data-related services to both political and corporate clients.
