French Data Privacy Watchdog Opens Probe Into Clubhouse

France’s data privacy watchdog said Wednesday that it had opened an investigation into Clubhouse, the US audio chat app that has become a social media hit.

The inquiry will seek to determine if European data protection rules apply to the app’s parent company, Alpha Exploration, the CNIL said in a statement, adding that it could take punitive measures if Clubhouse does not respect the legislation.

The CNIL said it was unclear how Clubhouse, which appears to have “no corporate entity within the European Union”, was using members’ personal information, and how secure the data was.
