Quantum entanglement: does it necessarily imply superluminal information transfer? [duplicate]

From what I understand, information is communicated instantly between two quantum-entangled particles regardless of the spatial distance between them. However, does this necessarily imply superluminal ...

What is wrong with this method for FTL communication? [duplicate]

I've seen the other questions, but almost all of them deal with manipulating quantum states so that the other person reads a message in the data. However, you cannot force a quantum state on ...

Why can't classical information be transmitted through quantum entanglement by measuring time between change events? [duplicate]

If the effect of measurement in quantum entanglement occurs instantaneously why can't it be used to transmit classical information faster than light? I'm based my question off this seemingly well ...

Quantum Entanglement and transfer of time information, is it possible? [duplicate]

If two particles are quantum entangled...let’s call them particle A and particle B. You measure the state of particle A. At this point, can you know the exact time at which the particle B goes from ...
