If you used Facebook in the United States between May 2007 and December 2022, you could claim part of the $725 million settlement that Facebook’s parent company meta agreed to settle in a class action lawsuit according to a claims website set up by a settlement administrator.
Facebook’s parent company, Meta, agreed last year to settle a class-action lawsuit that accused the company of sharing user data or making it accessible to third parties, including the data and political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica, without users’ permission.
The class-action lawsuit, which refers to when one or more individuals sue on behalf of other people with similar claims, also claimed that Facebook did not monitor the third-party access or use of that data.

To Claim Your Own Share of Facebook’s $725 Million Privacy Settlements follow the instructions below :
Facebook users who are eligible can enter their information at facebookuserprivacysettlement.com to receive payments through their bank account, Venmo or other methods.
Payments are likely to be small and depend on the number of people with valid claims and how long each claimant was a Facebook user during the claim period. The payment is split between applicants, with more given to those who have used the site longer.
The long-running lawsuit comes after it was revealed in 2018 that Cambridge Analytica used private data from millions of users’ Facebook profiles without their permission in one of the biggest data breaches in Facebook’s history.
The breach gave Cambridge Analytica access to the social media accounts of millions of US Facebook users to create voter profiles and allowed the company to help former President Donald J. Trump’s 2016 campaign. Meta denies responsibility or wrongdoing. He said the data of up to 87 million users, mostly in the United States, may have been improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica during the 2016 election.
