Facebook will soon introduce a ‘Clear History’ feature that will allow users to delete all information Facebook has on them. CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced this in a Facebook post ahead of his keynote address at the annual F8 Facebook developers conference.

He said the tool will be similar to the 'Clear History' feature that is available on web browsers. “It will be a simple control to clear your browsing history on Facebook -- what you've clicked on, websites you've visited, and so on,” he explained.

With this new feature, people will be able to see information about the apps and websites they have interacted with, and will be able to clear that information from their account. “You'll even be able to turn off having this information stored with your account,” he said.

Referring to his appearance in front of the Congress, Zuckerberg said, “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. We're working to make sure these controls are clear, and we will have more to come soon.”
