A German data protection agency has accused Facebook off tracking its users even after they delete their accounts from the platform.
The Data Protection Authority (DPA) in Germany has asked the company to look into the matter and respond to it in time, otherwise, the regulator is prepared to file a lawsuit against the company.
DPA head Johannes Caspar said that Facebook cookies stay in the web browser and are active even after users log-out. These tracking cookies can remain on the system for up to two years. He also said that Facebook does not delete the cookies even after a user deletes the account from the platform.
