Facebook under fire again for breaking Canadian privacy laws
According to a report released by the federal and BC privacy commissioners, Facebook released the personal information of hundreds of thousands of Canadians. Again, this time “committing serious contraventions of Canadian privacy law” states the report.
Facebook users personal information was not protected. As a result, outside sources had access to it which was used for political purposes.
Facebook’s previous scandal dealt with releasing information to Cambridge Analytica through an app.
BC privacy commissioners say that there’s a urgent need for stronger privacy laws.
