Facebook wanted to kick off 2020 on the right path for privacy, and the social media giant is reportedly about to make this really clear for most of its users.
Facebook plans to ask more than 2 billion users to review privacy settings
Facebook is reportedly planning to ask about 2 billion users all over the world to review their privacy settings over the next few weeks, according to the latest reports coming from Engadget.
The online publication writes that you should tap the prompt in your News Feed and you will be directed to the revamped Privacy Checkup tool in order to check out who is able to see your data and just how secure your FB account is these days.
It’s been also revealed that when Facebook had 2.45 billion monthly active users as of the summer of 2019, we’re looking at a pretty high chance that you will see this request in the near future.
Off-Facebook Activity tool is available worldwide
The website also notes that users will probably also gain more control over their data in this whole process. They note that the Off-Facebook Activity tool became available all over the world.
This offers users a summary of data from third party sites and the option to eliminate that data.
It’s also important to note that Facebook started to send notifications for third-party app sign-ins earlier in January.
In other news, the app’s developers have released a new update, Facebook 253.0.0.28.116, that brings improvements to the app’s performance and fixes some known bugs.
Facebook is one of the most used social media platforms all over the globe. With over 2.45 billion active users per month in the third quarter of last year, the platform had an increase in the user base of more than 55 million new active subscribers when compared to previous quarters.
