Mozilla Launches Firefox Container Extension to Isolate Your Data From Facebook
  • Mozilla Introduces Container for Facebook to Protect Browsing Data

Mozilla is introducing a new Facebook container extension which will protect user browsing data from the invading Facebook features

Remember the gold old days when Facebook was just an innocent little social media app which helped us meet new people, keep connected with friends and family and find great things around the world.

That is until the Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal revealed that Facebook is essentially spying on us. The research revealed that Facebook has been secretly collecting the data from its users and selling it to advertisers.

It has been functioning as a provider of data to the targeted advertising. People are appalled about this invasion of privacy. They trust Facebook to respect their data and it has been selling it out instead.

That is not all, according to the findings, Facebook has also been gaining access to the browsing data of the users to facilitate their profiling more.

While Facebook has been working hard to make the damage go away, Mozilla is now offering safe way to use Facebook without jeopardizing your privacy.

The web browsing tool introduced as the Facebook container extension that will keep Facebook activity contained on the browser and protect your browsing activity from Facebook invasion as well.

Once you have installed the add-on, Facebook will appear with a blue container icon and it will delete all your existing Facebook cookies and data.

After that, every time you access the Facebook icon; all your browsing activities will be disconnected from Facebook. Moreover, if you want to share something on third party website, Facebook will only get a notification about third-party activity, but it cannot track the exact activity.

Among the drawback is that Facebook comments and Like buttons on websites in other tabs won’t work. There might also be problems if you try to log in to a website using your Facebook credentials on third-party websites.
