Facebook is in the news again, and not in a good way. After the Cambridge Analytica scandal, many members of the general public and investors alike are starting to ditch the service. While many were aware that Facebook made money off of their information, the level of invasiveness was not made clear until now. In an effort to address privacy concerns regarding Facebook spying, Mozilla has released a new Firefox extension called Facebook Container that will keep your browsing in a separate “container” and keep the company from reading your information.
The Firefox extension is free to install for Firefox users, and was developed by Mozilla themselves in order to address Facebook spying. According to the makers, “when you first install the add-on, it signs you out of Facebook and deletes the cookies that Facebook uses to track you on other websites.”
