Facebook Rolls Out Privacy Tool To Manage How You’re Tracked Across the Web


    Facebook has been determined to give people privacy controls while they’re on the social network, but on Tuesday, it rolled out a long-promised tool that hopes to give people control from the social network. From a report: In a blog post on Data Privacy Day, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that the “Off-Facebook Activity” tool would finally be launched globally, a tool that allows people to manage how Facebook tracks them across the internet. Zuckerberg had promised this feature since May 2018, which at the time he called a “Clear History” button. While it had slow roll-outs around the world, starting last August, it should be available now to the 2.4 billion people who use Facebook every month, Zuckerberg said. In the blog post, he explained the delay was because “we had to rebuild some of our systems to make this possible.” “Other businesses send us information about your activity on their sites and we use that information to show you ads that are relevant to you,” Zuckerberg said in the post. “Now you can see a summary of that information and clear it from your account if you want to.” Read more of this story at Slashdot.
