    Facebook overhauling privacy settings and tools in the coming weeks..

    The data breach by Cambridge Analytica the reason.

    Redesigned security settings will let you decide what info Facebook and third-party apps keep.

    Also new, two-factor authentication and control of ads.

    And “Access Your Information” will let you delete anything from your timeline and profile.

    Good news there, but now we learn its been collecting phone and message data from Android users.

    Come on Zuckerberg! 

    Facebook says it does this so Android users can find people more easily.  But, no explanation as to why they save the data on servers.

    Simple solution is to delete the Messenger app from your phone.  Or go to settings and click “Start My Archive” for all Facebook knows about you.

    From security and nosy issues to Apple with a budget iPad targeted at students.

    299-dollars for students, 325 for consumers.
