A German court has ruled that Facebook has not done enough to alert people to the pre-ticked privacy settings on its mobile app.

Pre-ticked privacy settings sounds a little like Microsoft and their Windows 10 privacy settings until they were forced to change it.

Of course there will be those who argue that it's your own responsibility to check but if the person isn't told and the settings are just pre-ticked how are people supposed to my an informed decision.

The pre-ticked privacy options are unacceptable and need to go.
