FACEBOOK paid more than a million Americans at least $345 this month for collecting data without their consent.
Facebook users in Illinois were part of a seven-year, Class Action Lawsuit against the company that concluded last year.
The tech titan – now called Meta – reached a $650million settlement of claims it collected and stored millions of users’ biometric data.
The lawsuit claimed that Meta used photo face-tagging and other biometric data – physical characteristics – on the sly.
According to NBC Chicago, payments started getting mailed out to Class Members on May 9, 2022.
