Facebook Privacy Tool – The company has introduced a tool to give users a little more control over the data. Although the company had already announced this, but now it is being given to the users slowly.
Facebook launches Off Facebook Activity Tool
Social media giant Facebook has started new privacy Off Facebook activity tool. Let us tell you that the company announced this after the Cambridge Analytica data scandal, but it is now going to be given to the users. However, it will still be given to the users of only two countries and gradually it will also be brought to the users of all countries.
Since Facebook holds many types of data of a user. Like, what are you browsing on Facebook, what are you seeing, who are you talking to, what advertisement are you seeing. Facebook accesses such data. Apart from this, location data, WiFi details are all optional, that is, if you give access to them, then the company will collect data.
In order to give users more control over all types of data and to avoid allegations, Facebook announced this privacy tool.
The Facebook Clear History tool is currently being given to users in South Korea, Ireland, and Spain. This tool will be part of a new section of Facebook called Off-Facebook activity. By opening it, users will be able to see which apps and websites are tracking your activity and are reporting to Facebook for target ads.
You will get an option called Clear History, by using it, users will be able to remove all this information from their Facebook account. Apart from this, users will also have the option that if they want, they can block companies that are taking data.
Facebook has said that this tool is being gradually brought to everyone. Slowly because the company wants it to work properly.
There is also a very funny thing that Facebook has said. Actually, Facebook has also released a warning. In this warning, the company has told users that they can also see some apps or websites in their account activity that they have not visited because it is possible that your friend might have visited those websites by taking your phone. Facebook has said, ‘This can happen even if you share a computer with your partner or child’
Now Facebook is also trying to defend itself through this. Because recently, in the Cambridge Analytica data scandal case, Facebook has imposed many penalties of billions of rupees.
