Firefox Focus is a lightweight mobile browser—with built-in privacy protection, It lets you browse the web like no one is watching, Focus is designed for the times when you don’t want to leave a record on your phone, But how does it work? Focus is set by default to block many of the trackers that follow you around the Web, e.g. analytics trackers, social sharing trackers and advertising trackers, You can easily erase your history by hitting the erase button — no passwords, no cookies, no trackers are being stored.

It’s super simple, Start by using Facebook from a mobile browser and not an app,Then use Firefox Focus to isolate your Facebook session, Hit the “Erase” button before going to Facebook and right after, On Android, just click on the trash can icon,What you do on Facebook will largely stay on Facebook, Making it harder for external internet advertisers to have access to what you do while you’re on the social media platform.
