Protecting yourself on Facebook

11 Apr Protecting yourself on Facebook

What’s the easiest way to protect my data and stay on?

Refrain from using Facebook to log into other apps on your phone.  If you do decide to log into, say, Pinterest, using Facebook, you’re giving permission to said app and Facebook to exchange information about you. As for how you can stop Facebook from accessing these important details, all you have to do is click on the hamburger menu on the bottom right of the Facebook app, click “Settings”, then “Account Settings”, then “Apps and Websites” — which list all the apps you’ve connected to via Facebook — then click “Platform”, hit “Edit” and choose “Turn Off Platform” to disable this feature.

How about my basic profile information (i.e. hometown, education, etc.)?

It’s preferred to keep details under wraps, or at least available for you and your Facebook friends (not the public, which is also an option on Facebook). To do so, head over to “Settings”, then “Privacy Shortcuts” then “Privacy Checkup”, which gives you the chance to edit any of your profile information, in terms of privacy. This also gives you an opportunity to delete all those third-party apps you have on Facebook.

You really need to start limiting the information you supply to Facebook.  That way any information they gather isn’t going to make you panic whenever there is a data breach.
