Last year, Apple made an iOS update that made it much harder for social media and internet platforms to track user data beyond the scope of user interaction with the website.
But a new complaint filed with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California alleges that Meta (the parent company of Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram) used a loophole to keep snooping for their info.
Meta has clapped back against this and another similar lawsuit filed last week, saying that the allegations are “without merit.”
Everyone can trust Meta with their data, right? Nothing to see here.
