Meta sued for allegedly dodging Apple's privacy rule

Felix Krause's discovery that Meta's Facebook and Instagram apps can track iPhone owners across websites hasn't sat well with some people 

Bloomberg reports users have filed two proposed class action lawsuits 

accusing Meta of evading Apple's privacy-oriented App Tracking Transparency 

feature and consequently violating both federal and state laws barring unauthorized data gathering. 

Meta supposedly created a workaround by injecting tracking code into websites when you use its in-app browser 

letting it monitor activity regardless of whether or not you gave permission to the app 

Apple introduced App Tracking Transparency as part of the iOS 14.5 update released in April 2021
