AIB accused of 'spying' on mortgage applicants

AIB has been accused of using Facebook to spy on borrowers.

The bank is asking mortgage applicants to sign a form giving it permission to look at their social media accounts.

AIB says it helps it to understand customer behaviour.

A report in today's Irish Independent claims other lenders do not have similar consent forms.
