Facebook may face fine over breach
Facebook could be fined up to $1.63 billion by Ireland’s privacy watchdog after a network breach exposed the data of up to 50 million users. The incident, discovered last week, also impacts apps such as Tinder and Spotify, which permit users to log in via their Facebook account. About 90 million users were logged out of their accounts as a precaution. This is the second data breach to affect the social media giant in a matter of months after it was embroiled in the Cambridge Analytica scandal earlier in the year.
