Trust Principles

What you can expect from Workplace

Your Workplace account is separate from your personal Facebook account.

We've designed the system so the information you share in one is not shared in the other.

Workplace users do not see advertising in their company-managed community.

In addition, information you share in Workplace will not be used to target advertising in your personal Facebook account.

Workplace has industry-leading hosting operations.

The Workplace hosting practices are regularly audited by independent third-party auditors. An industry standard SOC3 report is available below, with a more detailed SOC2 report available upon request.

Workplace is hosted on Facebook's highly available, globally distributed infrastructure, and is engineered with a target recovery time objective (RTO) of zero, and a target recovery point objective (RPO) of zero.

Security is our top priority.

Workplace is designed in collaboration with our security experts. The security of the service is regularly evaluated and tested. Examples of these activities include full source code reviews, penetration tests, and security audits by an independent third-party. We happily share these reports and results upon request.

Companies control their data.

You can modify, delete, or export your data at any time. Our industry standard APIs are provided to allow for content export. The API documentation can be found here. If we receive a request for your data from a third party, we will always attempt to redirect the request to you.

The bigger picture

As Facebook works to make the world and workplace more connected, it is clear that our collective security depends heavily on one another. That's why Facebook invests considerable resources into making sure that not only Facebook is secure, but that the rest of the Internet is too.


In 2015, Facebook released ThreatExchange, an online sharing platform for security threat information. Bitly, Dropbox, Pinterest, Tumblr, Twitter and Yahoo are among the companies that have joined.


Facebook built Osquery, a popular open-source tool that makes it easier for security teams to monitor their operating systems for suspicious behaviour and threats.

Security@scale conference

Facebook brings together a range of security experts in a series of day-long conferences designed to share the latest in security technology and ideas for future innovations and collaborations.
