How To Opt Out Facebook’s Online And Offline Tracking

Many people don’t bother about their privacy online, but it’s a significant aspect because nobody knows who would take your writings, or who may be using (rather misusing) your photos, or other things that you have enjoyably posted in Facebook sometime.

Protecting your online data seems an arduous effort, but it is certainly worth the effort. In a recent collaboration between Facebook and a data collection company named Datalogix to improve the advertising system in the social network site, using information from programs like loyalty cards and pairs online data with offline data, is leading to a greater privacy threat. Yes, and users across the world on the social platform should give high priority to fight against this and other such threats.

Fortunately, there is a method to opt out of this service to protect your privacy. Believe me it is good and works in perfectly protecting our sharing. Read on to see how to do it.

Step 1: First of all you need to open up your Internet browser and visit this URL – http://www.datalogix.com/privacy/
Step 2: Next, scroll down on the page and reach to the paragraph labelled Choice.
Step 3: Now, click on the last Click here link in the paragraph.
Step 4: And fill out the information in the appearing form and also fill out the captcha.
Step 5: Lastly, click on submit button to opt out.

These above mentioned steps will surely solve security problems, but you need to be more careful in future. Companies link your online personal to your offline habit by glancing through some common data like address, email etc.

Ah! Another way to it is to give minimum information as possible to connect, like a separate email account or pseudonym.

Believe me, you will be on safer side from the bad face of today’s hi-tech mankind.
