Facebook also introduced a confidence-building tool that will further strengthen user accounts on the website. The organization also announced a new warning feature called’ Login Notifications.’ The aim is to warn you about third party logins about your previous logins.
You will be informed by the new feature when you use your account to sign into a third-party program. This is built to not only add additional layer of security to your account, but also offer you the advantage to monitor your content.
- Facebook can warn you on times such as the following: When a user logs into a third-party device using Facebook Login and enables the app to view their details.
- When a user re-use Facebook Password for logging into a third party app after an account has expired to access information.
“We understand there are sensitivities to people’s information privacy and related information and are taking active steps to honor and improve this in our products. We will continue to test additional user control features in early 2020, including bringing permissions to the forefront of the user experience when logging into a 3rd party app with Facebook Login.” Facebook said in a post.
Facebook released the newest version of its Privacy Checkup a few weeks ago. According to Facebook, the refreshed privacy function is meant to direct you through the essential privacy settings on the site. “The updated Privacy Review method has extended to four distinct areas to help you improve the protection and management of your account by seeing what you post and how you use it. We recognize that privacy is important and we have included data protection tips to help you settle on the best information, “the official blog of the organization said.
Facebook will now allow you to verify who can access the details on your page, such as your telephone and email address and your updates. The social media giant will now also help you improve the protection of your account by providing a better password and authentication reminders. The app helps you to explore ways in which people can look up and send friend requests on the website.
Facebook Privacy Review service was introduced in 2014 to help users understand the basics of staying on the site secure. However, the new tool has already been developed for everyone on the platform globally.
