BOSTON, May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Recent reports show that millions of Facebook users are becoming increasingly aware of and concerned about their online privacy and are actively altering their privacy settings as a result. To date, however, there hasn’t been a systematic means of tracking Facebook’s over 7,000-word Data Use Policy and privacy settings changes, leaving Facebook users to figure it out on their own. Abine, Inc., the online privacy company and makers of the popular Do Not Track Plus privacy tool, is changing that today with the launch of PrivacyWatch (Abine.com/GoPrivate), a new alert system created by Abine’s privacy experts to help consumers monitor and continuously improve their privacy on Facebook.
PrivacyWatch uses the latest monitoring tools and a team of privacy experts to assess changes to Facebook’s Data Use Policy and controls, delivering up-to-date alerts and easy-to-follow tips that help you keep your private information just that—private. With PrivacyWatch, Abine’s privacy experts will scan Facebook’s nearly 7,000-word Data Use Policy and privacy controls and alert users of any changes. PrivacyWatch will simplify the process of updating your Facebook privacy settings by clearly outlining what has changed and providing a step-by-step guide to keeping your personal profile information private.
PrivacyWatch is available immediately at Abine.com/GoPrivate for a $1.99 monthly subscription. In addition, Abine will donate 5% of every new subscription to the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), an organization that includes helping victims keep safe while using social networks among its many goals.
