Default WhatsApp fined €5.5 million by Irish

GDPR kicks in making Meta's eyes water

Ireland’s Data Protection Commission backed a German complaint against WhatsApp and slapped a €5.5 million fine on the company.

It latest fine to hit Meta, which owns WhatsApp, after the same body, the DPC, slapped the firm with a €390 million fine.

The regulator ordered WhatsApp Ireland to pull its socks up and bring its processing in line with GDPR rules within six months if it doesn’t want to face further sanctions.

The complainant stated that WhatsApp forced users into agreeing to data processing if they wanted to continue using the services, the complainant argued this was a breach of GDPR as users should have a choice about the data which is processed.
