Does Instagram spy on users? The image of the user’s bedroom has raised suspicions. An Instagram user was shocked when he saw a picture of a bedroom that looked similar to his bedroom in an Instagram ad.
After looking at the picture, the user was forced to wonder if Instagram was spying on its users.
According to a report in the British Daily Mail, Vincenzo Tiani, a professor at Brussels University, said he and his wife were shocked when they saw the ad.
The ad on Instagram featured a wardrobe with a yellow vase on top, white and yellow sheets on the bed and a brown carpet. According to him, this is what was in his bedroom.
A Belgian user commented: “I’ve never seen such an ad. Is Instagram spying on its users & their homes? Vincenzo says he talked to his wife about buying the closet a week before the ad.
- He also clarified that a Facebook spokesperson called it a strange resemblance between the two pictures.
- Vincenzo says that after the incident, he decided not to take his mobile phone to the bedroom in the future.
- Last September, Facebook was accused of spying on its Instagram users through mobile cameras.
According to Bloomberg News, a lawsuit was filed in the court in July after media reports said that the photo-sharing application could access photos of iPhone users even if the user had not opened the camera.
Facebook admitted its mistake and called it a technical glitch. During this time, the company stopped downloading this application.
