Even when you delete your Facebook history, third-party trackers and data-gathering methods may still be able to keep an eye on your online activities. 

This may result in data theft, which is even worse, or security issues like targeted advertising based on your surfing patterns. This is where PurePrivacy comes into play.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • Can I delete every page I've recently visited at once?


    Regretfully, removing every page you have seen at once is impossible. You must eliminate each one separately.

  • Is it possible to prevent Facebook from monitoring the web pages I visit?


    Although you can modify your settings to reduce it, you cannot completely prevent Facebook from tracking your behavior. Check options such as "Off-Facebook Activity" and "Clear Browsing History."

  • Can I remove my Recently Visited pages using any third-party tools?


    Using third-party solutions to manage your Facebook data is not advised. These are not always trustworthy tools that could jeopardize the security of your account. Remain with Facebook's default features.

  • Is it possible to view the information Facebook has gathered about my non-Facebook activities?


    You can view your "Off-Facebook Activity" preferences. This displays the information about your activities that websites and apps have sent to Facebook. Next, you have the option to uninstall particular applications and websites or delete all of your Off-Facebook Activity data.
