If you’re happy with the amount of information that Facebook has about you, then no problem.
But if Facebook’s intrusion into your private life does concern you, then there are ways to reduce what they know about you.
- Revoke app permissions
It is convenient to let other APPS and websites use your Facebook login and password rather than having to create and remember yet another login and password.
But that gives Facebook a lot of information on your activities on those APP – that’s probably why Facebook let you login to other APPS using your Facebook credentials.
Click on the arrow in the top right hand corner of your screen, then select Settings and Privacy then APPS and websites to review which services use your Facebook credentials and consider revoking them.
- Categories used to target adverts at you
Facebook collects your data so that they can sell it to advertisers.
But you can which categories they have you in and delete them.
In Settings and Privacy select Ads and you’ll see the categories and be able to change them.
- Turn off Location History
If you turn off Location Tracking on your smart phone then Facebook on that phone cannot track locations.
You may want to turn this feature off in your computer as well.
Settings and Privacy, then select Settings, then select Location and you cans top Facebook trying to track where you are.
If you have any experiences with these scams do let me know, by email.
