FaceBook Will Now Warn You If The Government Is Hacking Your Account

Facebook will now display a warning message if it suspects that your account has been breached by the government. Chief Security Officer Alex Stamos says that Facebook "will notify you if we believe your account has been targeted or compromised by an attacker suspected of working on behalf of a nation-state." In order to protect its own security processes, Facebook is not explaining how it can determine whether an attack is by the government. Facebook also says that the warning will only be used in situations in which "the evidence strongly supports our conclusion." This is basically Facebook trying to repair its image, as we know Facebook has faced a lot of criticism regrading privacy. What do you think ? Would this make you trust Facebook now ?
