After a hack in 2018 that exposed data for 29 million users, Facebook aims to improve its security processes. The social network offered a settlement for the breach in a lawsuit. Now, the company tracks suspicious activities related to digital access tokens allowing people to use their accounts more often.
The settlement takes place a few months after Judge William Alsup prevented the accuser from seeking financial compensation, after the accuser could not prove that he had to pay costs due to the breach.
The deal will go as-is without any guarantee, relying on the approval of Judge Alsup. But if it does, it may lower intruders ‘ chances of obtaining large amounts of personal information before Facebook locks down things. It still takes a long time before Facebook can say that its protection has been strengthened
