Facebook is a little bit public and nobody knows of what is going on as we use our accounts, right? Even a privacy settings cannot guarantee anything for our safety because as a simple user, they have the right to keep track of what we are doing through a background services.

Browsers are giving us a chance to look back from what we are visiting and that maybe the reason why we are also sharing our resources with them. Tracking an IP address is quite easy for some websites to return even our computer names back on their servers.

Private browsing in Facebook becomes a serious issue because according to our source, they are sending us a "datr" cookie which can really invoke some of our private details. We can hardly believe it before because we are ignorance of this file added to any browsing history folders in any computers. But when someone revealed a few exceptions in Windows firewall, it is clear that they are really hiding something that can expose our activity.

We cannot share that few tips on how to configure your computers just to avoid sending your details on their servers. That cookie is responsible in making our web browsing history as well activities in our computers.
