Facebook mentioned that within the next few weeks, “nearly 2 billion people around the world” will receive a prompt in their News Feed encouraging them to review their privacy settings.

This makes it even easier to adjust who can see your posts and profile information, strengthen your account security by turning on login alerts, and review the information you share with apps you’ve logged in to with Facebook.”
