Facebook sues analytics firm for allegedly harvesting user data

Feb 28, 2020 16:07 IST

Facebook has filed a federal lawsuit against data analytics firm OneAudience for allegedly stealing the personal information of its users. According to the lawsuit, the New Jersey-based company paid third-party developers to install a malicious Software Development Kit (SDK) in their apps that allowed it to secretly collect people’s data. The news of the exposure broke out last November when Facebook and Twitter admitted that hundreds of users' data, including email addresses and usernames on both the platforms, had potentially been compromised.
