Facebook data tracking is an old thing now and after so many scandals including the biggest one Cambridge Analytica, people have lost their trust in the App. However now this social media app gives you options, you can get paid by allowing Facebook track your data. Facebook is launching a new market research App that will spy the user’s phone and give them money for it.
This spying Android App will run off the background and will keep on noticing all that you are doing. The app is developed by Applause. Through the program, Facebook collects the following data and analyze information including:
- The apps installed on a participant’s phone
- The amount of time spent using those apps
- Participant’s country, device and network type
- App activity names, which may show us the names of app features participants are using
Should you Let Facebook Track your Data for Money?
Not at all! Facebook has remained in the limelight in the past due to spying people without their consent. By signing up for Study, you are compromising privacy on your phone. I do not think one should opt for it. Facebook knows more about your life, then you can imagine.
If you want to get $20 per month for compromising your privacy which may be used, later on, its better to do something else and earn this money.
Don’t trust any social media app, as they will take you to a place from where you wouldn’t be able to come back.
