Facebook is increasingly under public scrutiny for compromising its members data and in the wake of the growing concern of keeping your data to yourself, I have a couple of quick tips on how to limit the data being stored about you.
Facebook now lets you delete anything from your timeline for good. This means it won’t be able to share it with third parties.
Here are 3 ways you can protect your information.
- Go to Settings at the top right of your screen, next click on Activity log to see an over view of everything you’ve done on the social network in one spot and delete as you go.
Android users take a note: Facebook can collect information from your messages and conversations if you’re not careful.
- Go to Settings and click on Apps / Facebook / Permissions and make sure Telephone and SMS are Off.
3. Set limits on advertisers. Go to Settings / Ads And check your information. Here’s everything advertisers know about, so Opt Out of what you don’t want to share. And don’t forget your Categories option, too. Under Ad Settings you can even control the type of ads you get targeted with on Facebook.
