    What is The Facebook Settlement About?

    Numerous lawsuits were brought on behalf of Facebook users who alleged that Facebook shared or made accessible their data to third parties. Also users’ friends without permission of the users whose data was shared. And did not sufficiently monitor and enforce third-party access or use of that data. 

    Your Legal Rights And Options in This Settlement

    Submit a Claim: You must submit a completed Claim Form in order to receive cash from this settlement. The deadline is August 25, 2023. Send your Claim Form in person, by mail, or online. Another option is to get a printed copy by calling the Settlement Administrator. Download the Claim Form here! If accepted, the legal claims or factual allegations settled by this settlement preclude you from bringing a lawsuit against the defendant.

    Facebook Location $37.5M Class Action Settlement

    You might be eligible for financial compensation as part of a Class Action Settlement if you were a Facebook user who lived in the United States and disabled the Location Services setting for the Facebook app at any time between January 30, 2015, and April 18, 2018 (inclusive).

    A settlement has been reached between plaintiffs in a class action case brought in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California and Meta Platforms, Inc., formerly known as Facebook, Inc. (“Meta” or “Defendant”). If you deactivated the Location Services setting for the Facebook application on your iOS or Android device at any point between January 30, 2015, and April 18, 2018 (inclusive), you are regarded as a member of the Settlement Class as a Facebook user residing in the United States.

    To qualify for a potential cash payment from this Settlement, you must complete and submit a Claim Form in a timely and accurate manner, which must be approved by the Settlement Administrator. The deadline for submitting the Claim Form is August 11, 2023, at 11:59 PM PST. If you prefer, you can also contact the Settlement Administrator to request a paper copy of the Claim Form.

    It’s important to note that if your claim is approved by the Settlement Administrator, you will relinquish your right to sue the Defendant in a separate lawsuit pertaining to the legal claims resolved by this Settlement. Submit a Claim Form here!

    Facebook Location Tracking Settlement

    In this same timeframe, Meta has successfully addressed a different lawsuit involving the tracking of Facebook users’ locations. The lawsuit contended that Facebook engaged in improper tracking of users’ locations, even when they had deliberately deactivated location services within the Facebook app.

    Facebook has reached an agreement to pay a total of $37.5 million as part of this settlement. The purpose of this settlement is to provide compensation to Facebook users in the United States who disabled location services on their iOS or Android smartphones between January 30th, 2015, and April 18th, 2018. Similar to the resolution of the data breach case, individuals do not need to provide evidence to be eligible for compensation in the location-tracking settlement.

    More options: 

    You have the choice to reject the Settlement, in which case no money will be given to you. You can still file or take part in a different lawsuit against the Defendant on the legal issues covered by this Settlement if you choose to opt out of it. You can choose this option and pay for your own legal representation. The cutoff date for withdrawing is August 11, 2023.

    If you decide not to opt out, you may give the Court a written statement outlining your concerns with the Settlement. Additionally, you have the option to ask for permission to voice your concern at the final approval hearing. Additionally, you may still submit a claim for payment even if you oppose it. On October 5, 2023, objections must be submitted.

    However, if you do nothing and do not choose to withdraw from the Settlement, you will automatically be a part of it. You shall forfeit your right to sue, continue to litigate, or take part in another litigation against the Defendant relating to the legal claims settled by this Settlement and you will not be entitled to any compensation from this Settlement if you do nothing.

      I can’t remember when I filed mine or if they received it? How can I find out? I’ve been sick alot & in & out of Dr offices & hospitals. Is there a way to find out & if I completed it or not before it’s to late or is it to late?
      Any help would help thank you.

        Hey Wanda! If you had successfully submitted a claim and had been approved by the settlement administrator, you should have received a confirmation email with your Claim ID and Confirmation Code. Unfortunately, if you had not, it is now past the deadline to file a claim. Hope that helps. Enjoy the rest of your week.

        Hi Raesa! If you’re a Facebook user in the United States between May 24, 2007, and December 22, 2022, and you submit a timely and properly completed form approved by the settlement administrator, then it will work out fine. But don’t forget, you must file a claim form by August 25th, 2023.

        The settlement payment will be distributed as soon as possible after the final approval of the settlement and the resolution of any appeals. Once it’s finalized, it will take a few weeks to process all the claims and distribute the payments. The exact timing depends on factors like the number of filed claims and the available funds in the settlement. Hope this explains it!
