Facebook brings new changes to 'Privacy Checkup' tool

Mark Zuckerberg-owned Facebook has long been facing flak for not having a proper privacy policy in place to protect user data on its social media platform. It came under heavy scrutiny after the Cambridge Analytica scandal breaks out in 2016.

Since then, it has taken several measures to improve it, but most critics feel, Facebook needs to do more. 
Now, the company has announced new changes in the Privacy Checkup tool so that users can edit privacy options for sharing pictures, profile data and other information, more easily than before.

Here are key changes in Privacy Checkup:
