According to the blog, Facebook has updated its privacy policy making it a lot easier to understand how it is using the user data collected from other apps and websites. People want to know if and how their data was used by Facebook and third parties. "We also get information about which website or app you're using, which is necessary to know when to provide our tools".

That means that these non-subscribers haven't a clue about what information Facebook has obtained about them. But the bad news is that you can't really do anything about it for the time being, and Facebook doesn't plan to offer non-users access to the information about them that the service collects.

"We also want to empower people to decide for themselves what to read, trust, and share by providing the community with more information and control..." If someone tries to log into your account using an IP address from a different country, we might ask some questions to verify it's you.

Finally, Facebook says the data it receives can help improve the content and ads shown in the app, such as more sports-related content for users who demonstrate an interest in sports. "Additionally, those potentially impacted by CA will also see the alert which will then take them to see what data might have been shared", Facebook noted. With the vast trough of data of 2 billion users, Facebook can efficiently train its AI and make this prediction model even smarter.

Last week, the company had revealed that the data of about 87 million users on its platform were harvested without authorisation by Cambridge Analytica (CA).
