The Off-Facebook activity tool lets the user know which third parties interact with their social network even when they are not using Facebook.
You can access Facebook's "Clear History" tool via Settings Your Facebook information Off-Facebook Activity.
"Other businesses send us information about your activity on their sites and we use that information to show you ads that are relevant to you", Zuckerberg wrote.
I tried out the "Off-Facebook Activity" tool, and Facebook has allowed at least 625 apps and websites to share my personal activity. It's one of the ways Facebook's targeted ads become eerily specific and seem to know what you've been looking up on other websites. At this point, it feels safe to assume that most of the websites I'm visiting or apps I'm signing up to are probably sharing data on me with Facebook.
Facebook tracks users when they're not using Facebook.
In 2018, Mark Zuckerberg promised to implement a "clear history" tool for off-Facebook activity.

Facebook had a strong fourth quarter, making more money on advertising and adding more users despite challenges around regulation, privacy and efforts to fight election interference.
This third-party sharing is exactly what allows Facebook to learn about your activity on an online store, say something like browsing a particular shirt, and show ads related to that, which would be that shirt and other shirts from the same brand on that store.
Well, after months of delay, "Clear History" is now available to all Facebook users worldwide.
However, the data will not be permanently deleted. Facebook's ad revenue and profits were in line with expectations, but the stock still took a hit in after-hours trading, as some investors wondered if the company has peaked. And this is also hard on mobile, as people with smartphones now have more than 80 installed apps and use around 40 of them monthly.
People who opt out will still see ads but they will be "less personalised". The "Off-Facebook-Activity" tool isn't easy to find (though you can click that link to go directly to it). Clearing your history doesn't really delete it, either, but rather simply removes a user's name from that data. Click on "Settings and Privacy", then on "Settings".
