France's data protection authority, the Commission nationale de l'informatique et des libertés, issued a 20 million euro fine to Clearview AI for alleged breaches of the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The CNIL began an investigation into a complaint regarding Clearview's facial recognition database and data processing practices in May 2021.

With the fine, the CNIL also ordered Clearview to halt processing activities and delete previously collected data associated with GDPR violations.
