Facebook releases Privacy Center

Facebook is rolling out a new “Privacy Center” to educate consumers on their privacy choices and make it easier to grasp how the company collects and uses data. In Privacy Center, you may learn about Facebook’s privacy policy, as well as how to use privacy and security settings.

In the future, Facebook may make it possible for some users of Facebook on PC to access Privacy Center. In the months ahead, more people and applications will be able to use it. “We’ve built a number of privacy and security controls across our apps and technologies over the years, and our goal is for Privacy Center to serve as a hub for those controls and privacy education,” said Facebook in an official statement.

The current version of Privacy Center has five modules, each containing guides and controls associated with a distinct privacy issue: 

  • Security: You can brush up on account security, set up tools like two-factor-authentication or learn more about how Meta fights data scraping. 
  • Sharing: You can visit this guide if you have questions about who sees what you post, or how you can clean up old posts on your profile using tools like Manage Activity.  
  • Collection: Learn about the different types of data that Meta collects, and how you can view that data through tools like Access Your Information.  
  • Use: Learn more about how and why we use data, and explore the controls we offer to manage how your information is used.
  • Ads: Learn more about how your information is used to determine the ads you see, and make use of ad controls like Ad Preferences.

On the desktop version of Facebook, people with access to this first release may discover Privacy Center by going to Settings and Privacy.
