Facebook Acknowledges It Has Been Keeping Records of Android Users’ Calls and Texts

Last week, a user found that Facebook had a record of the date, time, duration, and recipient of calls he had made from the past few years. A couple days later, Ars Technica published an account of several others — all Android users — who found similar records. Now, Slate Magazine is reporting that Facebook has acknowledged that it was collecting and storing these logs, “attributing it to an opt-in feature for those using Messenger or Facebook Lite on an Android device.” The company did however deny that it was collecting call or text history without a user’s permission.
