Safeguarding by Facebook of the privacy of European users of WhatsApp

Priority question for written answer  P-000434/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Stéphane Séjourné (Renew)

The messaging service WhatsApp recently announced, then postponed, a change to its privacy rules. This has led to conflicting interpretations of the actual or potential implications of the change for members of the European public. When it bought WhatsApp in 2014, Facebook undertook not to cross-check data between its services for advertising purposes. In May 2017, the Commission fined Facebook for providing incorrect and misleading information on the matter.
