Today and over the next few days, you’ll see a Privacy Checkup popup on Facebook when you log in. The tool will help you audit your privacy settings and control who you’re sharing with on the social network.
As the video above shows, the review is pretty simple, with just three steps to follow. First, you’ll review (and change, if you want) the default audience for your status updates, then go over Facebook-connected apps, and finally review and edit the items in your profile.
Privacy Checkup will be available under the padlock icon > Privacy Checkup.
Facebook has gotten a lot of flak for privacy snafus and complicated settings (which is why we need a complete guide on the matter). This, however, is a very welcome step in the right direction.
