Mr. Zuckerberg, Facebook Founder, and CEO said,
One of our main goals for the next decade is to build much stronger privacy protections for everyone on Facebook. We know we have a lot of work to do here, which is why this is such a priority for our teams and for me personally. Since today is Data Privacy Day, I wanted to share some of the work we’ve been doing to give you more control over your privacy – on and off Facebook.
Prompting People to Review Privacy Settings
Over the next couple of weeks, Facebook will reveal almost 2 billion individuals all over the world, a prompt motivating them to evaluate their personal privacy settings. The prompt will appear in your News Feed and direct you to the Personal Privacy Checkup tool, which is recently upgraded. This makes it even much easier to change who can see your posts and profile info, enhance your account security by switching on login alerts, and evaluate the details you share with the apps logged in with Facebook.
More Control Over Off-Facebook Activity
Since today, the Off-Facebook Activity tool is offered to individuals on Facebook around the globe. Other services send details about your activity on their websites, and Facebook will utilize that info to reveal you advertisements that relate to you. Now you can see a summary of that info and clear it from your account if you wish to.
A new level of transparency and control has been marked with the Off-Facebook Activity, for which Facebook has to rebuild some of the systems to make it work.
Third-Party Login Alerts
Facebook Login lets you check in to other apps and services, like games and streaming platforms, utilizing your Facebook account. And to keep track of that, Facebook introduced the Login Notification initial of this month. These notifications alert will help you to stay aware of your account.
As a whole, Facebook is focusing more on strengthening privacy control, and they also mentioned that they will “continue to make progress on this important work in the decade ahead.”
