Instagram accused of collecting biometric data of users in order to sell them

Facebook is making the same mistake again. This time the service of the company Instagram was accused of collecting biometric

user data for their sale.

Last month, a lawsuit was filed against Facebook. The applicants accused the company of collecting biometric data from users through photo tagging tools. Facebook then offered to pay $ 650 million to settle the situation.

Now a similar lawsuit has been filed against Instagram. The service is said to have collected, stored, and profited from the data of more than 100 million users without their knowledge or consent. The lawsuit states that it violates Illinois privacy law. The company can be ordered to pay from $ 1000 to $ 5000 for each violation.

The complainants also claim that the company only started informing users about the collection of personal data at the beginning of this year.
