According to Bloomberg, despite the restrictions, Facebook continued to enter Apple user data.
Did you think you had your data safe against Facebook? Especially thanks to the latest restrictions? But this doesn’t seem to be the case for Apple users. In any case, this is what a Bloomberg report says.
not much change
Like all social networks, the Meta app has been constantly changing. With paid functions for example, but not only. Indeed, since September, other novelties have made their appearance to come.
We have also dedicated an article to this topic. To know everything that changed on Facebook in September, we invite you just click here. But what about the paid features? Because yes, even this free social network has it.
However, it is not these functions that bother Apple users. Some blame Marc Zuckerberg’s social network for deepen your personal data. While these were supposed to be protected with IOS.
Our colleagues at BFM point out, however, that Apple had reinforced them in 2021. But Bloomberg has just broadcast a collective complaint. Which dates from September 9. A complaint accusing Facebook of circumventing the rules.
Two people are at the initiative of this same complaint. In addition to accusing Facebook of having circumvented Apple’s rules… They also accuse him of having “It violates national laws. But also the federal authorities in matters of personal data protection”.
But what is really the nature of the problem? As almost everyone knows that Facebook, or even Instagram, spy on us daily. In order to offer us content that corresponds to us.
Is Facebook spying on Apple customers?
Simply because we are supposed to have a choice whether or not to disclose certain information. it’s a new time our fellow BFM who remembers him Apple users actually can “choose which app can access your personal data”.
And therein lies the whole problem of Facebook. Just because “no personal data to provide to advertisers… The social network is cut off from its main source of income” .
To quantify the loss, know that the social network would have predicted a loss of ten billion advertising dollars. Loss or not, the social network would have broken the rules. And that did not please Felix Krause. A cybersecurity investigator. Having revealed how the “pixel” works. And this from various digital platforms.
For example, it had let it be known that Meta was tracking its users’ searches and actions. Worse still, it would do it even when the app is closed… And this thanks to an “in-house” browser of the company From Facebook.
Thanks to this, she could have continued taking data. Many people noticed this. That is why, there is now a case in progress and Meta could be risking a lot. It remains to be seen what the bosses will decide.
Will they stop collecting information? And run the risk of losing a lot of money? Or find an arrangement to continue your harvest… Without going against privacy?
