Facebook to build Clear History feature




In their F8 2018 conference, Facebook has also announced their plans to build a Clear History feature that will give users more information and control over the data Facebook receives from other websites and apps that use their services.

The Clear History feature will enable users the ability to see the websites and apps that send Facebook information when you use them, delete this information from your account, and turn off Facebook’s ability to store it associated with your account.


 

By clearing your history, Facebook will remove identifying information so a history of the websites and apps you’ve used won’t be associated with your account. Facebook will still provide apps and websites with aggregated analytics but without storing the information in a way that’s associated with your account. Facebook maintains that they do not tell advertisers who you are.

Facebook’s Clear History feature is still in the works as the company will work with privacy advocates, academics, policymakers and regulators to get their input on their approach.
