Statement on Instagram's New Privacy Policy

Statement

Congressman Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), co-Chair of the Bi-Partisan Congressional Privacy Caucus, released the following statement after Instagram released an updated version of its privacy policy and terms of service that revealed the company could possibly allow user photos to be used without their permission as advertisements, with no ability for users to opt-out.

"A picture is worth a thousand words; posting one to Instagram should not cost you your privacy. I am very concerned that Instagram's new privacy policies and terms of service are putting consumer privacy at risk, especially that of teenagers. I will closely monitor this situation and hope Instagram takes the necessary steps to ensure that personal information is protected and not sold without permission."
