Facebook may face a fine of up to 37 lakh crores

A lawsuit has been filed on Facebook in the US for collecting biometric data of users without their consent. If found guilty in this case, the veteran social media platform may face huge fines of up to $ 500 billion (about Rs 37 lakh crore).

Facebook's subsidiary Instagram in the lawsuit has been accused of collecting data from users. It said that this company collected data of 100 million people and used it for its benefit. However, Facebook has termed the trial as baseless. The lawsuit was filed Monday in the court of Redwood, California, the Daily Mail reported.
