Posted on January 28, 2020 by Mehedi Hassan in Social with 3 Comments

Facebook is bringing its Off-Facebook Activity feature to everyone around the world. The company is announcing a couple of other privacy-related updates in celebration of Data Privacy Day.

Off-Facebook Activity, for those unfamiliar, lets you see your activity on other apps and sites that were sent to Facebook, and give you control over that data.

With Off-Facebook Activity coming to people all around the world, users will have more control over their data. Facebook is also getting more transparent with Off-Facebook Activity, as the tool provides users with data on how the company gets certain data, and how that data is used.

Facebook also noted that the company is rolling out login notifications for when users use Facebook Login to sign-in to third-party apps.

But more importantly, Facebook will prompt nearly 2 billion of its users to review their privacy settings. The app will show a prompt in users’ News Feed, directing them to the Privacy Checkup tool where they can adjust their privacy settings, turn on login alerts, and review the data they share with third-party apps, etc.
