Facebook rejects reports alleging call, text data collected without consent

Facebook Inc. dismissed reports that it collected the content of users' call and text messages data without consent.

The social networking giant in a March 25 post clarified that users do get an option to upload contacts along with call and text history when they sign up for Messenger or Facebook Lite on Android devices but that does not mean that it sells that data or records the content of calls and text messages.

Facebook said the information is securely stored and users always have the option to opt out of the feature that lets Facebook log this information.

The news comes as Facebook is facing probes from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, as well as the German government and Italy's regulator Agcom over a scandal related to its privacy policies.
