Everything you need to know about privacy on X

We want you to know how to make your X experience better — and more secure. So whether it’s initiatives we’re driving, announcements about new settings and controls, or communications about security incidents, you’ll find it all here.

We’re no strangers to long privacy policies and complex regulations, and we know how frustrating they can be to read. So we’ll do our best to talk about it all like actual human beings.

Your privacy on X

You have more control over your X experience than you might think. We want you to know what data we collect, how we use it, when we share it, and what we do to protect it.
