Off-Facebook is a new tool for social network users to even better manage the privacy and data collected by third-party apps and sites when you log into them with your account.
When you log in on a website or app through your Facebook account, some data can be provided to the social network itself to get more information about your habits and offer you more and more personalized advertisements.
Today, thanks to the Off-Facebook tool, you can check which external apps or sites have access to your data and revoke their consent or manage what they can collect.

Off-Facebook activity includes information that companies and organizations share with Facebook about your interactions with them. Examples of interactions just visit their website or log into the app with Facebook.
