Facebook is rolling out a new feature called Photo Review that aims to give you more control of any image of you that has been uploaded to the social media platform and to prevent people from impersonating others online.

The new feature will “alert you when your face shows up in newly posted photos so you can tag yourself, leave it be, ask the uploader to take the photo down, or report it to Facebook,” according to TechCrunch. It does this by comparing newly posted photos to your profile picture and other posts you’re tagged in.

Facebook has set up different kinds of alerts, so that users who upload photos in a private or limited mode still have protection. But you will be notified of every public posts that contains an untagged photo of you. And there will be a page that will keep track of all your untagged but recognized photos.
