 $ 1 billion lawsuit against Facebook. Facebook Latest news update 2019. Facebook again broke rules. 

 Criticism and controversy are not leaving Facebook behind. Facebook has been plagued by allegations of privacy breach, failure to prevent falsified news or misuse of information. In the US state of Illinois, Facebook has a $ 5 billion class-action lawsuit against Facebook. News from the IANS.

The lawsuit was requested by Facebook to dismiss the lawsuit alleging misuse of information related to facial recognition in the state. However, a three-member San Francisco judge panel rejected the Facebook application. The tech website, TechCrunch, said on Friday that if Facebook does not go to the Supreme Court now, a $ 5 billion class-action lawsuit will begin hearing.

The complaint states that Facebook did not seek permission before people in Illinois scanned their uploaded photos and identified the appearance. They did not even know how long that information would be stored on Facebook. Facebook has begun mapping their identities since the early 20th. If Facebook loses in this case, the person will have to pay a fine of $ 1,000 to $ 5,000. If you pay the fine to 1 million users, $ 1 billion will go out of their pocket.

The judge in the court said that facial recognition software violates a person's personal affairs and factual preferences. This violates the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act.

A Facebook statement says Facebook has been telling users about the use of facial recognition software. They have control over whether they will use it or not. The options are being reviewed by Facebook and the legal battle will continue.

Earlier, Facebook had negotiated a record $ 5 billion deal with the US Federal Trade Commission over allegations of privacy. This year, Facebook faces an even bigger fine.
