Ireland fines Instagram €405m

The Irish Data Protection Commission has fined Instagram €405 million for violations of the General Data Protection Regulation.

The fine, which is the second-highest fine under the GDPR after a €746 million penalty against Amazon, is the third for a Meta-owned company handed down by the Irish regulator.

In an emailed statement, the Irish DPC confirmed the penalty but declined further comment.
