The Off-Facebook Activity tool Facebook

Facebook’s Off-Facebook Activity tool allows you to view and manage the information the social network receives about you from other websites and applications. As part of this tool, you have the ability to stop your future off-Facebook activity from being saved to your account. While you can stop all off-Facebook activity from being saved to your account, you also have the option to stop information from being saved only from the individual apps and websites you choose. Our guide will show you how this is done.
