WhatsApp GDPR fine

The fine relates to an investigation which began in 2018, about whether WhatsApp had been transparent enough about how it handles information. The issues involved were highly technical, including whether WhatsApp supplied enough information to users about how their data was processed and if its privacy policies were clear enough. WhatsApp has been fined €225m (£193m) by Ireland’s data watchdog for breaching privacy regulations. Whatsapp said it disagrees with the decision, and the severity of the fine, and plans to appeal. What do you think about the fine ?
