Another day and another fine on tech giants. The South Korean Personal Information Protection Commission imposed a fine worth USD 50 million on Google and USD 44 million this time on Meta.
The fine on Google and Meta is that they were collecting users’ information and data without their permission. According to reports, Meta and Google used users’ information for advertisements and other financial benefits.
Meta and Google said in their defence that they always consider users’ information and protection. But the South Korean authorities claim that Google and Meta don’t ask users before showing them advertisements and using their data for targeted ads.
