“Apple is facing a proposed federal class action alleging that it records users’ mobile activity without their consent and despite privacy assurances, in violation of the California Invasion of Privacy Act, reports Bloomberg. In a lawsuit filed by New York citizen and iPhone 13 owner Elliot Libman, Apple is accused of ‘utterly false’ assurances that users are in control of what information they share when they use its stock iPhone apps. Specifically, the class action claims that Apple mobile device options to disable the sharing of device analytics and opting out of settings such as ‘Allow Apps to Request to Track’ do nothing to stop Apple from continuing to collect data relating to users’ browsing and activity for monetization purposes.” (11/14/22)
