The new Privacy Centre is currently only available to certain users in the US, but will roll out to “more people and apps in the coming months.” Those who have access to it can find it in the Privacy section of the Settings menu.

The new privacy centre sorts things into five categories: Security, Sharing, Collection, Use and Ads.
