Facebook Unveils Privacy and Security Tool

Facebook said on Wednesday that it is rolling out a new tool to centralize user privacy and security settings following the outcry over its data collection practices.

The company said that users will be able to make changes from a single page instead of having options spread across nearly two dozen screens on different parts of platform. Facebook plans to roll out the change in the coming weeks.

Facebook users will be able to adjust an array of privacy settings on the page for the information that they’ve given the platform, like their interests, and their activity on Facebook, such liking photos and commenting on friends’ statuses.

Users will also be able to more easily see what data can and can’t be shared with apps.
