 Titanium Media App reported on August 23 that Meta Platforms signed a $37.5 million collective settlement agreement with Facebook users, according to a document in the San Francisco federal court. The users complained that Facebook continued to track their location after they turned off their device's location services. The tech company's breach covered some 70 million U.S. residents who used Facebook between January 30, 2015, and April 18, 2018. According to the filing, class members who submit claims through the online system will be paid electronically or by check. The class-action parties accuse Meta of improperly harvesting users' IP addresses and using them to infer their location to profit from targeted advertising.
