Meta Now Bundles Facebook And Instagram Settings

Meta has announced that it is merging the Accounts Center, which is located in the settings menus for Facebook, Messenger and Instagram. With this, Personal details, Passwords and security, and Ad preferences will now live in a centralized place, so it’ll be easier for people who use multiple apps to manage their settings, said the company.

In addition to bringing Ad preferences to Accounts Center, Facebook said that it is also making improvements to some of the ad settings controls that can help people understand and manage their ads experience across our technologies.

  • Data about users’ activity is updated from Partners’ control, which is now called Activity information from ad partners to help people easily understand how their activity sent from other websites and apps is used to power the ads they see.
  • Now it is for people to understand their options when it comes to seeing ads shown by Meta on other apps and websites.

Meta also updated Parental Supervision Tools for Instagram. The company said that users can also keep their accounts in separate Accounts Centers if they want, and they will still have access to the same settings, and can apply them to individual accounts.


The new Accounts Center integration will start rolling out from today, and will gradually roll out to everyone on Facebook, Messenger and Instagram in the coming months.

Facebook is also planning to centralize additional settings in Accounts Center in the future, so that people can more easily manage their preferences across the products.
