Meta announced on May 26 that it will be rewriting and re-designing its privacy policy after four years to make it easier for people to understand and provide more clarity about how they make use of their information, even as it faces regulatory scrutiny across various parts of the world including India.

The new policy is expected to come into effect from July 26, 2022 and covers Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and other Meta products. It will not cover WhatsApp, Workplace, Free Basics, Messenger Kids or the use of Quest devices without a Facebook account, which have their own privacy policies.

The company said it is also updating its terms of service to "better explain what is expected from us and those who use our platforms".

"These expectations include the rights and obligations described in our community standards, for example when we may disable or terminate accounts that violate our Terms or Community Standards or others’ intellectual property rights or other laws," said Michel Protti, Chief Privacy Officer, Product at Meta in a blogpost.
