Quote:
Some services linked user names and email addresses with detailed information like income, refund amounts, filing status, and even the amount of dependents’ college scholarships.
...
it confirmed was sometimes generated and shared “regardless of whether the person using the tax filing service has an account on Facebook” or other Meta service.
I already knew about the "ghost profiles" and the danger of the meta pixels but this is IMHO again crossing all the limits

Big Tech players should really start getting hard punishments for such behaviour, and I mean really hard, if not... they will continue doing the same as until now... That means: pay the fine, laugh their asses off and continue doing the same, because it brings waaaayyy more money that what they have to pay when caught.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
