'Facebook takes data from my phone – but I don't have an account!'

Adam 52 Silver badge

Computer Misuse Act 1990 s1:

(1)A person is guilty of an offence if—

(a)he causes a computer to perform any function with intent to secure access to any program or data held in any computer, or to enable any such access to be secured;

(b)the access he intends to secure , or to enable to be secured, is unauthorised; and

(c)he knows at the time when he causes the computer to perform the function that that is the case.

Section (c) might be an issue, but a simple letter can easily sort that.
