At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Anyone who used the BeReal app to take a photo of their face while living in Illinois.
What’s Going On?
It’s believed that the BeReal app may be using facial recognition software to secretly collect users’ biometric information – specifically, scans of their facial geometry – without permission. If so, it’s possible that a class action lawsuit could be filed on behalf of BeReal users over potential violations of an Illinois privacy law.
How Could a Lawsuit Help?
A class action lawsuit could help compensate BeReal users whose privacy may have been unlawfully violated.
