Facebook has a database of people who, according to him, pose a threat to employees or portal offices and is able to track their location using information collected through their services, according to the American CNBC website.
In recent months Facebook regularly has to refute allegations related to the way in which the portal collects information about its users. These problems are also perfectly matched by the latest reports from the company’s camp, because it looks like the company also has no problem with electronic tracking of its employees and people who, according to him, pose a threat to its facilities and people currently employed in the company. This is what the CNBC portal claims, referring to a dozen or so sources, presents the behind-the-scenes practices of the facebook security department.
Of course, the existence of this type of department inside Facebook is not a surprise. Like other large corporations, Facebook must follow potential threats to its employees, although it has unique ways to look after its own interests. We are talking about a company whose services are used by nearly three billion people – whether via Facebook itself or websites linked to this portal (eg Instagrama). Facebook can therefore use its own applications for extremely effective tracking of potentially dangerous users.
How does Facebook track people on the blacklist?
According to CNBC, for this purpose, the portal uses data about the location of a given person downloaded from their phone by the Facebook application or by tracking the IP address. Importantly, the company reportedly tracks user locations only when it has authentic grounds that the threat posed by a given person it is real. In this case, Facebook takes appropriate action, including, of course, a police notice.
