Facebook knows everything about you when and what you’re doing it, find out how to stop it.
There are very few people today who do not use Facebook. No money is required to use this social media platform. In return, Facebook collects your various data and uses it for advertising. However, even if you do not use this app, Facebook also collects data from various third-party apps or websites. But you can turn off this data tracking if you want. Mark Zuckerberg’s company came up with a new tool for its users last year. Using this tool, you can see what data Facebook is taking about you from third-party apps and websites. This tool, known as ‘Off-Facebook Activity’, lets users control these data sharing settings. The following is a step-by-step guide on how to use this tool:
