Despite quitting Meta, Sheryl Sandberg gets security due to ‘threats to her safety

  • Meta will pay for private security for Sheryl Sandberg until June of next year. 
    On Friday, the board agreed to the security detail because “continuing threats to her safety” had been made. 
    On September 30, Sandberg stopped working for Meta, but she is still a non-executive director.
  • Sheryl Sandberg’s bodyguards will keep paying for them even though she no longer works for the company.

According to Reuters, on Friday, the board of the company that owns Facebook agreed to give its former chief operating officer a security detail because of “continuing threats to her safety.”

Meta didn’t say much about the threats that Sandberg, who is 52 and has been one of Mark Zuckerberg’s closest employees and one of the most powerful women in Silicon Valley, was facing.

The news agency said that Sandberg will have private security at her home and when she travels until the end of June 2023.

After 14 years at the company, the tech executive said in June that she was leaving her job as COO.

Sandberg’s last day at Meta was September 30, but she will continue to serve on the board of directors.

In April, a report in the Wall Street Journal said that she had tried to stop bad news about Bobby Kotick, the CEO of Activision, by using company resources. She and Kotick had been linked romantically in the past.

Despite quitting Meta,

At the time, a spokesperson for Meta said in a statement that Sandberg “never tried to use the business relationship between MailOnline and Facebook to try to change an editorial decision. This story tries to find connections between things that don’t go together. “

In June, it came out that Meta was looking into how she used company time and money to plan her wedding. The investigation also looked at what Sandberg did over a number of years, such as whether she had staff working on her own projects.

At about the same time that Meta started asking questions, Sandberg decided to step down as COO.

In June, a spokesperson for Meta said that the investigation had nothing to do with Sandberg’s decision to leave the company.

Sandberg said that after she leaves Meta, she will work on philanthropic projects through her foundation, Lean In, and on women’s rights issues. She also said she would not take on any other CEO jobs. In August, she got married to Tom Bernthal, who used to be the CEO of Kelton Global.
