The United States-based global social networking platform Facebook has already been in trouble for the past several months on various issues such as antitrust, dominance of power, misuse of customer’s secret data, and many more. Recently, Facebook’s instant messaging app WhatsApp is also trolled and alleged by its rivals for stealing customer’s data and selling it to third parties.

A couple of days back, Apple had charged Facebook with collecting a vast amount of user information and data through its WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger apps. According to Apple’s privacy labels update, the amount of data collected by Facebook is much higher when compared to Telegram and Signal. Same as the other apps, Facebook collects location details and usage data sometimes even without permission.
