Millions of Facebook users are concerned that their personal information was collected by the data-mining company Cambridge Analytica and mishandled by the social media giant.
Facebook shared their plans to restrict data access for users who want to secure their personal information.
The company is suggesting those who are concerned to check the apps they are using on Facebook to determine what data is being shared through those apps.
Beginning this week, Facebook users should begin to see a link on their News Feed which allows them to see what apps they’re using and learn about the information being shared. The link will also allow users to remove apps they no longer want.
Facebook is also encouraging users to provide feedback on the company’s updated Terms of Service. The company will be collecting the feedback until Wednesday. Once the feedback period is over, those terms will be posted online.
Facebook is also asking users to review their privacy and security settings while using their new Privacy Shortcuts menu.
The company is also providing a “Data Abuse Bounty,” which will reward people who report any misuse of data by app developers. Facebook said in a news release they have not decided on a maximum reward for those who report suspicious data usage.
