How Facebook spies on you and how to stop it

March 27, 2018





Here are some tips to disable data utilized by the Apps on Facebook: 

  • From a computer: log into Facebook, click on the triangle in the top right hand corner of your browser, then Settings, then Apps.

    • Disable Apps from accessing your data such as friends, photos, and private information.

  • From your cellular device/tablet: open Facebook, click on the 3 horizontal lines in the bottom right hand corner to open your “Options”, scroll down to “Settings”, select “Account Settings”, then scroll down and select “Apps”.

    • Once you are in Apps and Websites, you can disable Platforms that allow apps to interact with your Facebook Account. Then disable the option “Apps others use”.
