Warner and a slew of other politicians have said that they're concerned about the potential for Chinese companies like Huawei and ZTE to give the Chinese government backdoor access into the data about Americans using their devices.
New York Times says Facebook has had data-sharing partnerships with at least sixty device makers, including Apple, Amazon, Microsoft and Samsung over the last decade. Facebook's explanation that it had to work closely with device makers when feature phones were the norm makes sense, and the Times story doesn't do anything to counter it.
The Times' investigation reportedly found that since around 2007, dozens of tech and device-maker companies were granted broad access to collect data on Facebook users and their online "friends", including friends who had denied Facebook permission to share information with third parties. Not that this is likely to satisfy Blumenthal and Markey - there's no guarantee they'll take action, but they clearly want more explicit promises of privacy than Facebook has offered so far.
Parakilas told the Financial Times that while Facebook said it had blocked apps from acquiring the data held by app users' friends, "in the case of hardware manufacturers they didn't do that".

According to the Washington Post, "Vladeck said additional penalties could include a court-ordered monitor of Facebook's business practices, injunctions against particular ways of using of consumers' data or heightened monitoring by the FTC".
The agreements required the third-party companies to use the information only for the intended objective of integrating features into users' devices, Facebook says. "Given that these APIs enabled other companies to recreate the Facebook experience, we controlled them tightly from the get-go".
Just when the world seemed to be forgetting Cambridge Analytica, Facebook might have another major privacy scandal on its hands.
Chinese telecommunications companies have come under scrutiny from US intelligence officials who argue they provide an opportunity for foreign espionage and threaten critical USA infrastructure, something the Chinese have consistently denied. He confirmed the use of the data-sharing agreements with about 60 companies - including Amazon, Apple, BlackBerry, HTC, Microsoft, and Samsung - which were used to allow users to access Facebook before there were app stores and standard operating systems.
