That includes investigating apps that collected lots of people's information before Facebook put new safety measures in place in 2014, restricting the amount of information apps can gather about you, and keeping users up to speed about what information they've given to which apps.
Zuckerberg did say, though, that the biggest changes needed to combat improper info sharing happened years ago, when he says the company dramatically reduced the information apps could get on you or your friends.
He says the information Cambridge Analytica is accused of using was gathered in 2013.
