Today U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) announced new legislation giving users the right to take back all of their personal information from social media companies.

Senator Hawley’s announcement follows news of a new online tool, Take it Down, that aims to give control to users to take down explicit images and videos of themselves from the internet. The tool is reportedly operated by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and funded in part by Meta.
