Public outcry has built since reports in The New York Times and The Observer that Cambridge Analytica improperly received data on tens of millions of Facebook userswho downloaded an unrelated psychology app, and data on those users' friends, without their consent.
First up, Facebook has redesigned its app's settings page on iOS and Android.
"Last week showed how much more work we need to do to enforce our policies and help people understand how Facebook works and the choices they have over their data", the blog post said.
Facebook said a new privacy shortcuts menu will allow users to quickly increase account security, manage who can see their information and activity on the site and control advertisements they see.
Facebookannounced Wednesday that the company will make it easier for users to find various privacy settings in the wake of criticism of how the company collects data on user habits.
"We've heard loud and clear that privacy settings and other important tools are too hard to find, and that we must do more to keep people informed", Erin Egan, Facebook's chief privacy officer, and Ashlie Beringer, its deputy general counsel, said in a statement.
In addition, members will be able to download specific categories of data including their photos from a selected time range, rather than only being able to export a single large file that might take hours to obtain.
'These updates are about transparency - not about gaining new rights to collect, use, or share data'. In the new centralized page, people will be given a streamlined list of what each app is collecting on them, as well as the ability to delete the apps.
