Facebook Tracks You Even If You Opt Out, Says Belgian Report
An investigation has revealed Facebook seeds your computer with tracking cookies, no matter what.
If you have suspected Facebook is tracking you for ad campaigns, no matter what, all the time: You are right. A report commissioned by Belgium’s data protection agency has slammed Facebook for tracking people online, even if they are not logged into Facebook, even if they have opted out of tracking—even if they are not Facebook users at all, The Guardian reported Tuesday. The European Union has been coming after Facebook and Google for alleged anti-privacy practices for a while, but now it finally has proof that Facebook is disobeying privacy requests from users in direct violation of EU law.
