Facebook ices in-app dating in EU after questions from regulator – Naked Security


Facebook has delayed the rollout of its new dating feature in Europe, following officers from the Irish data regulator having popped by to ask why Facebook hadn’t checked in about it earlier or provided the necessary data privacy paperwork.

The Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC) said on Wednesday that Facebook Ireland hadn’t bothered to contact the DPC about its intention to roll out the new dating feature in the EU until Monday, 3 February. That’s not much time, the DPC said, given that this is the first we’ve heard about it, and given that Facebook planned to roll it out just 10 days later.

We were very concerned that this was the first that we’d heard from Facebook Ireland about this new feature […]. Our concerns were further compounded by the fact that no information/documentation was provided to us on 3 February in relation to the Data Protection Impact Assessment [DPIA] or the decision-making processes that were undertaken by Facebook Ireland.

Facebook first started talking about invading Tinder’s space with a dating feature for meeting non-friends back in May 2018 at its F8 developer conference. Then, it launched the in-app dating feature – called Facebook Dating – in September 2019 in the US, after having previously premiered it in 19 other countries, including Colombia, Canada, and Thailand.
