Checks rolling out in Illinois after Facebook privacy lawsuit

ILLINOIS, USA — Payments are rolling out in the settlement of a 2020 lawsuit against Facebook, now Meta, over its use of facial recognition technology that violated an Illinois privacy law.

In an update posted to an official website for the lawsuit, it was announced that beginning May 9, payments estimated at $200-400 would begin rolling out to plaintiffs in the suit.

Officials said that if you are expecting a payment and do not receive one within two weeks of May 9, wait until mid-June to make an inquiry.
