Meta announces updates to terms of service for UK users

Meta announced updates to its terms of service and privacy policy for UK users. Starting 25 April 2025, the provider of services such as Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp in the UK vill change from Meta Plaforms Ireland Ltd. to the US-based Meta Platforms, Inc. The change means that UK users and their service agreements will move outside of the EU’s jurisdiction, following UK’s exit from the EU.

According to Meta, the change does not have any impact on users’ privacy settings and their ‘information will still be protected by UK data protection and privacy laws’.
