Following privacy activist Max Schrems accusing Facebook and Google of violating the EU General Data Protection Regulation, a French digital rights group is making similar charges against the two companies, as well as Apple, Amazon and LinkedIn, ZDNet reports. La Quadrature du Net filed seven complaints against the five companies with the French data protection authority, the CNIL. The group’s claims are similar to the ones Schrems made related to forced consent. La Quad is also preparing to make official complaints against Android, WhatsApp, Instagram, Skype and Outlook. The group has made the text of the complaints public, encouraging other entities to copy the format in order to make similar complaints against tech companies.
