Facebook's Off-Facebook Activity tool is now available to everyone

It shows you what third-party sites and apps share data with Facebook about your activities when you visit them.
You can find it under "Facebook information" in the site's settings. Facebook is under fire again, accused of sharing private messages and other user information with other companies.
Everything we do online generates an extensive amount of behavioral data, from buying clothes to looking for hotels, which apps and websites often share with advertising companies, allowing them to build more accurate profiles of your interests and needs.
The tool has three key functions: showing the list of sites/apps and the interactions they have shared with Facebook (from the news you read to the product you opened at Myntra/Flipkart), disconnecting that data history, and managing future interactions. Also provides options to manage individual items that you have blocked using "Manage your Off-Facebook Activity".
Off-Facebook activity can be tracked in the latest version of the app or on the Facebook website. To be clear, if you turn it off, Facebook will still receive information about your activity, it just won't be associated with your account.
This is what Facebook says when you select the clear history option.
