Facebook currently faces 10 investigations into whether the company violated new European privacy laws, which are stricter than their U.S.
In December the company announced a software bug that exposed the photos of nearly seven million users to third-party apps without user consent.
Three of the potential GDPR violations are related to the September breach according to the report. Regulators are examining whether Facebook correctly handled notifying European authorities of the breach and user data.
Two probes are focused on WhatsApp, which is often considered the most secure of the platforms because of its end-to-end encryption. One is related to how it handles user privacy and how it shares information with Facebook outside of the app.
Twitter and Apple also face two probes each.
