No, Facebook can not activate the microphone on your mobile phone in secret

The British website Metro has come across a Facebook patent that reveals that the online community is largely able to track users.

updated:

We mistakenly wrote that Facebook has patented technology that can turn the microphone on your mobile without notice. As The Verge writes, it is a system that can investigate whether a particular content has been played a certain number of times. This is done by associating a user ID and a sound print against a particular content.

The patent application correctly mentions that a device can record audio from another, but it is not mentioned that a device can be turned on automatically without the user aware of it.
