WhatsApp has been fined over $3.3 million in Italy for 'forcing' users to share their personal data with its parent company Facebook.

The popular chat app has been asked by all of the 28 European Union data protection authorities to stop sharing users' data with Facebook as there were doubts over the validity of users' consent, Express.co.uk reported on Friday.

"We're reviewing the decision and we look forward to responding to officials," the report quoted a WhatsApp spokesperson as saying.
