EU Will Not Currently Recieve Meta Threads for Privacy Reasons

HomeAppsEU Will Not Currently Recieve Meta Threads for Privacy Reasons

Meta’s new platform Threads just launched today. It’s basically a competitor to Twitter. It was a smart move on Meta’s part since Twitter is making some really questionable changes to its platform. Especially since Elon Musk acquired the platform. Firstly, paid verification checks and now tweet limit on free accounts. It seems like a great time to move on. However, it’s not going to be easy for EU users.

EU Meta Threads Regulation

Ireland’s Data Protection Commission (DPC) spokesperson reported that Threads will not be currently available in the EU regions. The DPC has not prevented EU app shops from selling Threads. However, Meta has already decided that they won’t let the EU users get the update until the way is clear for them.

Meta has seen a lot of fines from the EU Union in the past. Some even reach up to nearly 1.2 Billion Euros. The new Threads platform will also have some policies which let the app get user data for advertising and other purposes. To not get in the EU’s sights and possibly violate another law, Meta is making sure that everything is right. This is not the first time they have faced something like this.

It’s still not confirmed how much time will it take for Meta to actually begin rolling out Threads in the European Union. However, complying with all the conditions will not be an easy thing to do.
