German watchdog orders Facebook to change the way it collects data

Germany’s antitrust watchdog ruled on Thursday that Facebook abused its market dominance in collecting, merging and using user data. The watchdog said it was imposing far-reaching restrictions on how Facebook processes user data and gathers consent. Specifically, it said Facebook will no longer be able to combine users’ data from separate apps like WhatsApp and Instagram without user consent.

I’ve been hiding in plain sight for decades. I even have a Facebook account. It’s all about your browsing habits.
