How can I adjust how ads are targeted to me based on my activity off of Facebook?
We offer multiple ways to control the ads you see based on your activity off of Facebook.
If you don't want Facebook to use information based on your activity on websites or apps off Facebook for the purpose of showing you ads, you can opt out in your ad settings. Learn more about online interest-based advertising from Facebook and see our Data Policy for more information about our data practices.
If you're a registered Facebook user, the choice you make on your browser or device will apply across your devices. If you're not a registered Facebook user, you'll need to make this choice on each browser or device you use.
From your browser
