Facebook将支付6.5亿美元用于和解面部识别隐私诉讼

Facebook will pay $650 million to settle facial recognition privacy lawsuit

Facebook will now hand over a total of $650 million to settle a lawsuit over the company’s use of facial recognition technology. The social network added $100 million to its initial $550 million settlement, Facebook revealed in court documents reported by Fortune.

Facebook将支付总额为6.5亿美元的款项,用以解决有关该公司使用面部识别技术的诉讼。F根据《财富》报道,法庭文件透露,这家社交网络在最初的5.5亿美元和解金基础上增加了1亿美元。

The lawsuit dates back to 2015, when the company was hit with a class action lawsuit saying Facebook violated an Illinois privacy law that required companies obtain “explicit consent” before collecting biometric data from users. At issue was Facebook’s “tag suggestions” feature, which used facial recognition to scan photos and automatically suggest tags when users uploaded new images. (Facebook stopped scanning faces by default last year.)

这起诉讼可追溯到2015年,当时该公司遭遇集体诉讼,称其违反了伊利诺伊州的隐私法,该法要求公司在收集用户的生物特征数据之前获得“明确同意”。争论的焦点是Facebook的“标签建议”功能,它使用面部识别扫描照片,并在用户上传新图片时自动推荐标签。(Facebook于去年默认停止扫描人脸。)
