Recently, Snap, the parent company of social software Snapchat, will settle a privacy class action lawsuit for $35 million (about 240 million yuan) due to alleged filter effects that violate the biometrics act. The class-action lawsuit, filed in the U.S. state of Illinois, alleges that Snapchat’s filters unreasonably collect and store residents’ facial information without prior notification of such actions, in violation of the Illinois Bioinformatics Privacy Act. Previously, Meta was also sued in the state for the filter function on Facebook and Instagram, and eventually disabled the relevant function in the state. (Tencent Technology)
