Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, is exploring a plan to offer ad-free versions of these platforms in the European Union for a monthly fee.

Users in the EU would have the option to pay around 10 euros ($10.46) per month for a desktop account on either Facebook or Instagram, with an additional fee of about 6 euros for each linked account. On mobile devices, the cost per account will increase to about 13 euros, including commissions from Apple's and Google's app stores.

Meta is exploring this ad-free subscription plan in response to evolving regulatory requirements in the EU. Earlier this year, Meta was fined 390 million euros for privacy violations by Ireland's Data Privacy Commissioner.

The company aims to ensure compliance with these regulations by offering ad-free alternatives while still supporting free services with personalized ads.
