1950 crore fine imposed on WhatsApp

Ireland's data watchdog has imposed a fine of 225 million euros (about Rs 1950 crore) on WhatsApp. Facebook has been fined for violating EU data privacy rules. WhatsApp, on the other hand, has denied the fine and termed it as completely disproportionate and said it would appeal.

Ireland's Data Protection Commission said on Thursday that WhatsApp did not tell citizens in the European Union what it did with their data, according to reports. He says WhatsApp failed to tell Europeans how their personal information is collected and used, as well as how WhatsApp shares data with Facebook. A meeting of the European Data Protection Board in July issued a clear directive requiring DPS to reschedule and increase its proposed fines based on a number of underlying factors. After this revaluation, the DPC has imposed a fine of 225 million euros (about Rs 1950 crore) on WhatsApp. The Irish regulator has struck a chord with an order to bring its processing into compliance with a series of specified remedial actions.

Whereas WhatsApp spokesperson says that it is committed to providing a secure and private service. He says that we have worked to ensure that the information we provide is transparent and comprehensive and he will continue to do so. He said, “We disagree with today's decision about the transparency is provided to the people in 2018 and the punishment is wholly disproportionate.”
