Facebook faces massive fine for disclosing children's Instagram data




The Office of the Data Protection Commissioner of Ireland (DPC), representing the European Union, is investigating possible leaks and insufficient security of children's personal data in the social network Instagram, which is owned by Facebook.





This is reported by the BBC.

DPC is responsible for protecting people's right to privacy on the Internet and has the right to impose heavy fines. If the investigation finds out that Instagram has violated the privacy laws, the owner of Instagram may be subject to a large fine.

The investigation was initiated due to reports that Instagram was unable to protect user data, including the disclosure of email addresses and phone numbers of people under 18 years of age.

Earlier, U.S. data processing specialist David Steer complained to DPC that in a year at least 60 million users under the age of 18 were able to easily change their profiles to business accounts, making personal information is available.
