The social media giant has released a simple tool to let you check if your data was shared with Cambridge Analytica. Just click this link (make sure you are logged in to your Facebook account already) and you’ll be taken to Facebook’s “How can I tell if my info was shared with Cambridge Analytica?” page. There you’ll see a box labeled “Was My Information Shared?” that will tell you if you or your friends logged in to the “This Is Your Digital Life” app, which shared data with Cambridge Analytica.

If you see the message saying “Based on our available records, neither you nor your friends logged into ‘This Is Your Digital Life.’ As a result, it doesn’t appear your Facebook information was shared with Cambridge Analytica by ‘This Is Your Digital Life.'” You’re in the clear–if Facebook is to be believed, anyway.
