At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Any Illinois resident who has an Instagram account.
What’s Going On?
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are gathering Instagram users to take action against the company. It’s believed that Instagram may have violated an Illinois-specific privacy law by collecting users’ biometric information, including scans of their faces, without first obtaining their written consent.
What Am I Signing Up For?
You’re signing up to participate in what’s known as “mass arbitration.” This is different from class action litigation, and occurs when hundreds or thousands of consumers bring individual arbitration claims against the same company, at the same time, over the same issue.
What You Can Do
If you’re an Illinois resident who uses Instagram, join others taking action by filling out the form linked to below.
Does This Cost Anything?
It costs nothing to sign up, and if the attorneys don’t win your claim, you don’t pay.
What Could I Get?
While there are no guarantees, it’s possible that those who sign up for mass arbitration could be entitled to $1,000 or more.
