Meta announced changes to ad controls and centralises more user and privacy settings across its apps

Share via:

Meta’s chief regulator, the Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC), was given orders in December to issue a final decision on this complaint (which dates back to May 2018) — via a binding decision from the European Data Protection Board (EDPB), along with two other complaints, against Facebook and Instagram.

The DPC issued those two final decisions earlier this month, when it announced a total of €310 million in penalties and gave Meta three months to find a valid legal basis for that ad processing. According to Meta, the update is intended to make its settings experience more user-friendly. However, the constant rearranging of app settings something Facebook, in particular, has been notorious for doing over the years can cause consumer confusion. However, because the newly relocated items will still be in the Settings section, it should not be too difficult to locate them in this case.
