Facebook is being sued by Australia’s Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) over how the company allegedly used its Onavo VPN to spy on users for commercial purposes during 2016 and 2017.

The social media giant first acquired the VPN service Onavo back in 2013 for close to $200m. Facebook then released an app called Onavo Project which was subsequently banned from Apple’s App Store for collecting and reporting usage data.
