Back in May of 2018 Facebook announced a new privacy tool called Clear History and now the company has finally started to roll the tool out.
The new Clear History privacy tool for Facebook will let you see exactly what data Facebook has collected on you.
If you clear your off-Facebook activity, we’ll remove your identifying information from the data that apps and websites choose to send us. We won’t know which websites you visited or what you did there, and we won’t use any of the data you disconnect to target ads to you on Facebook, Instagram or Messenger. We expect this could have some impact on our business, but we believe giving people control over their data is more important.
Facebook is rolling the tool out to Ireland, Spain and South Korea first, it will be released in more countries soon, as yet there are no details on a launch date for the US or UK.
