Government sends second notice to Facebook and Cambridge Analytica

Updated : April 26, 2018 06:21:13 IST

The centre has shot off notices to Facebook and Cambridge Analytica for the second time, seeking more details on the data breach scandal.

Cambridge Analytica had been accused of accessing over 87 million Facebook user's data in an unauthorised way. The entire episode has also raised questions on Facebook’s privacy laws as well.

The second set queries have been sent to both, Facebook and Cambridge Analytica as their reply to first notice were not found to be satisfactory. Both the companies have been asked to reply to new set of queries by May 10.
