The Canadian government has ended its investigation into Facebook's privacy protections.
Canadian privacy commissioner Jennifer Stoddart signed off on Facebook's new policies, noting the social networking site's efforts to reform its oversight of third-party developers.
"A major concern during our investigation was that third-party developers of games and other applications on the site had virtually unrestricted access to Facebook users' personal information," Stoddart said in a statement.
"Facebook has since rolled out a permissions model that is a vast improvement."
The end of the probe settles what had been a lingering privacy headache for Facebook. The company has looked to tighten up its privacy policies in recent months, and allow users greater control over the information that is made public.
However, Stoddart warned that Facebook is not yet out of the woods with regulators.
"While we are satisfied that the changes address the concerns raised during our investigation, there is still room for improvement in some areas," she said.
"We have asked Facebook to continue to improve its oversight of application developers, and to better educate them about their privacy responsibilities."
