Facebook is suspected of illegally accessing the camera of Instagram users

Yup! It seems like Facebook is always in trouble when it comes to user privacy. This time they were accused of using the cameras of Instagram users illegally or secretly. This news has also spread in the media circles, including general media such as the Daily Mail, Bloomberg, and Business Insider.

In an article in Bloomberg, this lawsuit was filed by an Instagram user named Brittany Conditi in the San Francisco, New Jersey section of the court. In his demands, Brittanny said that Facebook through the Instagram application uses the user's cellphone camera to get valuable data from Instagram users.

In the article, it was also stated that Facebook deliberately collected confidential data from Instagram users secretly.

In other charges, Facebook is also accused of using facial recognition technology to collect biometric data for Instagram users. However, Facebook has denied this accusation and claims that they do not use technology such as facial recognition on the Instagram application.

Even though there are different applications, it seems that Facebook cannot escape this accusation against Instagram. As we all know that Instagram has been acquired by Facebook several years ago, so for the company's policy and direction will certainly not be separated from the influence of people on Facebook, including Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook CEO).

So how did this start? then who discovered this illegal activity assigned to Facebook?

Some time ago, an iPhone user shared a screenshot where there was a sign that the camera was actively recording even though what he was doing was looking at 'scrolling' photos/videos on the Instagram application.

At that time, Facebook denied this and argued that it was due to a bug or error in the system on the iPhone with its latest software, iOS 14. Facebook said that the camera would only be active if the user who activated it, could not be automatic as alleged.

Another time, a user named Twitter named KevDov shared a screenshot showing that the camera on his iPhone was active and recording.
