Meta representative told reporters that protecting people’s information is central to Meta’s vision of being a privacy-focused communications platform. She said that privacy is fundamental to how Meta business works, and that it’s everyone’s responsibility at the social media company. She went on to brief that Meta is committed to giving people more control over their privacy choices. That’s why it has built tools to give people more transparency and control over how their data is used.

Multiple Tools offered by Meta

Meta offers its users multiple tools and features to help them take control of their privacy. These tools include privacy checkups, Privacy Shortcuts, Manage Activity, and Audience Selector Tool, Who can look me up? and the Privacy Center.

These tools make privacy, security, and ad control settings more accessible to the users, besides helping them decide who can see what they share and controlling how people find them on Facebook. The privacy center is the educational surface for Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger that provides helpful in-depth information on privacy.

Meta strives to help people understand its data practices by giving them more information and controls on its products and over ads, to ensure that personalized advertising and privacy are not at odds.

Meta Privacy Tools Ensure Information Security

Tools on Meta platforms like Security check-ups, Two-Factor Authentication, End to End Encryption and additional Accountability for ‘Third Party Apps ensure information security. Meta gives people more control and choice over their data and gives them tools for deleting anything they’ve posted or transferring data to other services because Meta believes that part of having a free and open internet means that people should be able to transfer their data to other apps and services they use.

Meta doesn’t sell any user information to anyone. Partners and third parties who have access to certain data are required to follow rules about how they can and cannot use and disclose the information Meta provides.
At Meta, the process of refining the privacy and security systems is ongoing and the company will continue to invest and innovate to give its customers the best user experience.
