Facebook is facing a lawsuit about allegedly watching Instagram users through unauthorized access of their Mobile Cameras.
The complaint has been filed in federal court in San Francisco where an Instagram user claims that the application’s unauthorized use of the camera is intentional and with the purpose of collecting “lucrative and valuable data on its users that it would not otherwise have access to.”
Facebook has denied the claims and put the blame on a system bug for showing wrong notifications Instagram accessing iPhone cameras. Facebook says that it is working on fixing the issue.
Facebook is previously accused of using facial-recognition technology for collecting the biometric data of more than 100 million Instagram users in an unauthorized manner. Facebook has denied all such claims and commented that Instagram doesn’t use face recognition technology.
