The Federal Trade Commission approved an approximately $5 billion settlement with Facebook over the company's 2018 Cambridge Analytica scandal, a person familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal. Several other news outlets separately reported the approval.
The fine represents the largest ever imposed by the FTC against a tech company. Previously, the agency's largest fine against a tech company came in 2012 when Google agreed to pay a $22.5 million penalty due to its privacy practices. The fine would represent approximately 9% of Facebook's 2018 revenue.
The settlement drew criticism from a number of senators and Congress members, including Democratic Sen. Mark Warner.
"Given Facebook's repeated privacy violations, it is clear that fundamental structural reforms are required," Warner said in a statement on Friday. "With the FTC either unable or unwilling to put in place reasonable guardrails to ensure that user privacy and data are protected, it's time for Congress to act."
Republican Congressman David Cicilline called the settlement "a slap on the wrist."
"This fine is a fraction of Facebook's annual revenue," he said in a statement on Friday. "It won't make them think twice about their responsibility to protect user data."
Facebook took a one-time charge of $3 billion in anticipation of the FTC fine in April in the company's first-quarter results.
The FTC approved the settlement by a 3-2 vote along party lines with Republicans in favor and Democrats against, and will now be reviewed Department of Justice, the report said.
The FTC and Facebook declined to comment to CNBC.
The FTC began probing Facebook in March 2018 following reports that political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica had accessed the data of 87 million Facebook users. The agency was concerned that Facebook had violated the terms of a 2011 agreement, which required Facebook to give users very clear notifications when their data was being shared with third parties.
