Facebook updated its privacy settings to make them easier to use. The redesigned privacy settings apply to iOS and Android applications and the mobile web.
Following the update, the settings are now grouped into six broad categories: Account, Preferences, Audience and Visibility, Rights, Your Details and Community Terms, and Legal Policies.
Whether Facebook's redesigned privacy settings are really simple is up to everyone, but it emphasizes the importance of controlling your account and ensuring that it is as locked as possible.
One of the best updates is a shortcut to checking the privacy of your Facebook account, allowing you to do a quick test to see how your data is being used. At the same time, an update on tool Facebook Transfer Your Information is ideal for those who are thinking of delete the social network.
How to lock Facebook
Everyone knows how "hungry" he is Facebook for information and if you still want to use it, you need to make sure it is as secure and private as possible. The first thing you can do for your security is to ensure that you have a strong password that protects your account, preferably by using a password manager. Next, you need to set up two-factor authentication, preferably using a security key such as Yubikey .
Now for privacy, there are Facebook settings that allow you to ensure that your account is only visible to friends or even some friends.
The most important privacy settings on Facebook, in my opinion, are related to advertising and the way you monitor as you browse the web. Apple's iOS 14.5 has a setting called "App Tracking Manager" that lets you restrict Facebook tracking, but does not help when using another device such as a laptop.
It is widely accepted that Facebook monitors us a lot. The entire business model of the social network is based on advertising, which makes it necessary for Facebook to collect a large amount of data.
If you are interested in privacy, you can turn off your Facebook activity in the "Your Facebook data settings" setting. This covers information that businesses and organizations share with Facebook about your interactions with them, such as visits to their applications or websites.
In addition, log in to your Facebook account and view your ad profile. You can go through each setting one by one and turn it off. In your browser, it is in Settings and then in privacy in Ad Settings or you can go through the privacy check. Locking these ads will not stop you from receiving ads on Facebook - they will become less relevant - but it will definitely make your experience less creepy.
