July 23 (Reuters) - The Federal Trade Commission plans to allege that Facebook Inc misled users about its handling of their phone numbers as part of a wide-ranging complaint that accompanies a settlement ending the government’s privacy probe, the Washington Post reported, citing two people familiar with the matter.

As part of the settlement, Facebook will not be required to admit guilt, the report said on Tuesday. (wapo.st/2JMGbKQ)
