New Security Measures Coming to Facebook


Facebook users will soon be able to delete their history on the app and website.

Founder Mark Zuckerberg wrote a post on that platform Tuesday saying that he will be discussing the privacy option at his F8 conference. 

Zuckerberg says the new "Clear History" control is comparable to when people clear cookies on their web browsers, essentially wiping any information or logins on their device. "Once we roll out this update, you'll be able to see information about the apps and websites you've interacted with, and you'll be able to clear this information from your account," Zuckerberg wrote on Facebook. "You'll even be able to turn off having this information stored with your account."

Facebook has been facing privacy concerns recently over the 2016 presidential election and came under fire in March after it was revealed that user data used for political purposes by the data firm Cambridge Analytica. 

In his post, Zuckerberg warns users that their Facebook experience might not be as good as it was previously if you use the "Clear History" option. 

"One thing I learned from my experience testifying in Congress is that I didn't have clear enough answers to some of the questions about data," Zuckerberg wrote. "We're working to make sure these controls are clear, and we will have more to come soon."

Facebook also announced at the F8 conference that the company will dabble in online dating.
