Instagram’s parent company has been fined €405 million for mishandling teenagers’ data. The decision and fine was finalized by Ireland’s Data Protection Commission (DPC) after an investigation into the company’s data handling practices.

The DPC’s decision came in on Friday last week, with a promise to share “full details” later this week.

This is the third and largest fine the DPC has ever imposed on the company, and Meta says it will appeal.
