The national plaintiffs’ law firm of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP is investigating complaints that Instagram is violating user privacy protections, including violations related relating to tracking and advertising.
Today, much of our work, commerce, finances, and communications and interactions with others take place through the technology of the digital world. Digital technology is everywhere we go, and with the proliferation of “smart” devices, we go everywhere with it. As a result, intrusions into our lives are inevitable, and the opportunity for Instagram and other services to share and profit from the private facts of our lives is unprecedented and nearly limitless.
We appreciate the convenience that technologies like Instagram bring, but have come to rightfully be concerned that, quite apart from the services these technologies provide, their incredible computing power and ability to aggregate data threatens us with near-constant surveillance and commercial and political manipulation.
Lieff Cabraser’s Privacy & Cybersecurity practice group is committed to holding the line against abuses of the power of these technologies.
