The Brazilian Department of Consumer Protection has fined Facebook R$6.6M ($1.6 million) over Cambridge Analytica, The Hill reports. The agency said the data of 443,000 Brazilians was used "for questionable purposes and without the represented parties being able to demonstrate any modifying fact that that number was actually smaller." A Facebook spokesperson said the company is considering its legal options in the case. "We are focused on protecting people’s information and privacy," the spokesperson said. "We have made changes to our platform and restricted the information accessible to app developers. There is no evidence data from users in Brazil were transferred to Cambridge Analytica."
