Ant Financial Services Group said it will conduct sweeping reviews of all its business lines after being reprimanded by regulators for data-privacy violations.

The Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) met with representatives of Alipay, China’s largest third-party payment services provider, as well as its affiliate, Zhima Credit, over a default setting that opted users into sharing their personal information with the company, according to a Wednesday announcement from the internet regulator.
