Three Users Sue Facebook Over Call, Text Data Scraping

Three users of the Facebook Messenger application sued the social network giant Facebook, arguing that it violated their privacy by collecting records of their phone calls and text messages in the latest legal challenge facing the company, of course, the social network giant Facebook.

The lawsuit filed by the Americans, filed in federal court in the Northern District of California, seeks collective action status on behalf of all affected Facebook users and claims for unspecified damages.

The social network giant Facebook Inc. is offering its users greater control over their privacy by facilitating data management and redesigning their menu of configurations, the firm said on Wednesday in response to the scandal over the alleged use of information by millions of people for a political consultancy.

The social network giant Facebook had acknowledged on Sunday that it recorded the call history of some members of the social network but said that it only did when users of the Android operating system accepted or given permission.

On Sunday, the social network giant Facebook had indicated that it does not collect the content of calls or text messages and that the information is stored securely and not sold to third parties.

However, we all know very well that the most used mobile operating system, Android is owned by the tech giant Google of Alphabet Inc, which is not mentioned in the lawsuit.
