Facebook sued for allegedly spying on users via in-app web browser

0

Meta is being sued for allegedly gathering personally identifiable information (PII) on its Facebook and Instagram users without telling them. 

As per the lawsuit, the problem lies in how the company’s Facebook and Instagram platforms handle internet links on an iOS device. Both apps have their own embedded internet browsers (opens in new tab), the WKWebView, which render the pages when a user clicks on a link (as opposed to opening the links in, say, Safari, or Chrome).
