Facebook has today launched a feature for some users to let them know if their data was leaked in the long-running Cambridge Analytica case.
Facebook has promised to alert users whose data may have been used for political gain.
According to Wired, starting with 7 am. on Tuesday, some Facebook users will begin to see two messages at their top their news feed. One message will refer to Cambridge Analytica, while the other will focus on privacy, data, and control of the applications they use on Facebook.
So if you or a Facebook friend had tried the "This is Your Digital Life" quiz used by Cambridge Analytica to steal data, you will see the following message:
We have banned the "This is Your Digital Life" page, which may have been used by one of your Facebook friends. You can learn more about what happened and how you can remove any other application and page if you no longer want to have access to your Facebook information. ”
If Cambridge Analytica did not have access to your data, Facebook will take you to settings so you can better protect your information on the social network and its countless applications.
