Facebook turned over chat messages between mother and daughter now charged over abortion
10 August 2022
Facebook stores most user information in plaintext on its servers, meaning the company can access it if it is compelled to do so with a warrant. The company routinely complies with law enforcement requests.
“Nothing in the valid warrants we received from local law enforcement in early June, prior to the Supreme Court decision, mentioned abortion," Meta, the company that owns Facebook said in a statement Tuesday evening.
