Facebook COO: Users Who Want Privacy Would Have To Pay For It

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

A top-level Facebook executive suggested users who want to protect their data would have to pay for the privilege.

Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said Friday on NBC's "Today" show: "We have different forms of opt-out. We don't have an opt-out at the highest level. That would be a paid product."

But she was clear that wasn't in the company's plans.

Sandberg and CEO Mark Zuckerberg have faced intense media and public scrutiny following revelations Cambridge Analytica accessed at least 87 million users' data.

Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify before congressional committees in April.
