Facebook sued over collection of mobile call and text data
A Facebook user sued the company Wednesday over alleged collection of user call information on Android phones with a Facebook app installed.
John Condelles III installed two Facebook apps on the Android phone he bought in 2016. Now he’s suing the social network for its alleged collection of information on calls and text messages on all Android phones with a Facebook app installed.
Filed in federal court in California, the lawsuit seeks to hold Facebook liable for allegedly violating the privacy of all Android users who installed a Facebook app while the data collection occurred.
