Facebook-New Privacy Tool To Protect Your Data

Facebook is launching a new feature that lets you see and control data that apps and websites share with the platform. It’s called Off-Facebook Activity and it lets you keep track of the kind of information third-party apps can access and what they’re using it for. For example, if you’re shopping for the Galaxy Note 10, Facebook can find out what you were searching for and show you targeted ads for that phone.

With the new privacy feature, you can tell Facebook to disconnect any information that the company has shared from your account, and it’ll stop showing you those targeted ads. Its launch follows a $5 billion fine from the Federal Trade Commission and a commitment from Facebook to better protect users’ privacy.
