The Facebook tool for activities outside of Facebook is now available worldwide to manage data from other websites



Facebook announced today that the Off-Facebook Activity feature is now available to users around the world after being launched gently in Ireland, South Korea, and Spain last summer. With off-Facebook activity, you can view a summary of the data that third-party apps and websites have shared with Facebook, and delete it if you believe it is correct.


As Facebook explained, other companies post information about your internet activity on social networks on their websites. Facebook uses this information to display customized ads. With off-Facebook activities, you can view and delete this information. You can even choose to separate all future off-Facebook activity from your account or only from certain apps and websites.

Today's news relates to the next decade of Facebook's "more privacy protection," and the company admits it has a lot of work to do in this regard. These updates include a prompt that prompts every Facebook user to check their privacy settings, and "sign-in notifications" that alert you when your Facebook account is used to sign in to third-party apps.

Almost two years have passed since the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal hit Facebook and sparked a debate about how large corporations should process and monitor user data. Following the event, Facebook made announcements after announcing changes in privacy, security tools, and promises to improve its overall ability to protect user information.

Regarding the new off-Facebook activity tool, the company welcomed "conversations with data protection professionals, policy makers and other companies about the further development of such tools".
