SCARS|RSN™ SCAM NEWS: German Regulator Bans Facebook From Sharing Data From WhatsApp, Instagram

Germany’s Federal Cartel Office has decided to prohibit Facebook from collecting the data of users from its services WhatsApp and Instagram, as well as third-party websites with Facebook integration. By not obtaining sufficient user consent for collecting the data from other apps and sites, the company abused its dominant position in the market and violated EU personal data protection law, the German regulator said.

Data can only be assigned to Facebook from WhatsApp and Instagram with the user’s voluntary consent, the Bundeskartellamt said in a press release. WhatsApp and Instagram can continue to collect data without assigning it to Facebook user accounts, and Facebook may collect and process data from users of the Facebook social network.

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?

Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:

  2. Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov)
  3. The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on
