One of the perils of modern computer use is the fact that your browser history is pretty much fair game for any website you go checking on. Facebook, in particular, is looking like the sort of company that is willing to steal pretty much all your search and app history for its own uses. In this case, they’re selling advertisements based on the kind of stuff you’ve been looking at. If that kind of privacy invasion seems concerning to you, there’s a way to stop that from happening. Here’s how you stop Facebook from selling your browser history.
You have to head to the Digital Advertising Alliance and use their tool to help your browser opt out of the potential websites. I opted out of 34 companies just while writing this post, and there are 116 or so more that participate in the opt out program, which will definitely help you keep your information a bit more secret and blocks the Facebook ad harvesting technique from being successful.Technorati Tags: ads, facebook, facebook ads, facebook browser history, facebook browser history ads, facebook selling browser history, stop facebook from selling browser history
