Hello, I’m from the government and I’m actually helping you.

“New York Requests Documents from Facebook, Apps on Data Sharing,” The Wall Street Journal, March 1, 2019.  Apps were apparently sending sensitive personal health information to Facebook.

Does that app you use share your data with Facebook?  What if the data is personal health information?

This investigation is brought to you courtesy of the New York Financial Services Department, which claims jurisdiction over all financial services that affect New York consumers.

Seems good to have the government protecting our privacy when we can’t or don’t.
