Facebook is under a criminal investigation over its data-sharing agreements with major technology firms and manufactures, ABC News has confirmed. Federal prosecutors in the Eastern District of New York are looking into the social networking giant’s sharing deals with other big tech companies, a source with knowledge of the matter told ABC News Wednesday.
The probe comes just months after The New York Times published a report accusing Facebook of giving well-known electronics companies, including smartphone makers, more intrusive access to users’ personal data than it previously disclosed.
A New York grand jury has subpoenaed records from at least two prominent smartphone manufacturers in connection with the criminal investigation, according to The New York Times, which first reported news of the probe. The companies were not named in the report.
