When Google Chrome incognito is used for search like any brands/businesses like medlife, any ecommerce , banks, travel site, telecom, organisation, others.

Immediately in Facebook, the sponsered ads are appearing.

How is this possible?

Are there any ways to avoid these ,

More importantly, there is no privacy,
Our browsing history is shared with fb, and fb inturn targets with sponsered ads.

Yup its been a while since the news came into limelight.
But I am sure nothing is gonna happen they will pay the fine if imposed and the case isn’t settled outside.

Which setting in facebook, should be kept off for better privacy,

1. Off Facebook activity

Best you can do is use any other browser like Brave
Although I don’t bother about these much now as that’s what their business model is and its the only company I trust if I know my privacy will be breached. Also being a android user there’s nothing i can hide if they really want to see it.

Google creates a ad profile of every user so if you are just concerned that ads are shown as per your search or use history then you can delete it and select random ads so now they won’t be based on your usage and will be random. Although I haven’t used it much with it so not sure how affective it is.
For any other ads just use adblocker plugins or any other browser with inbuilt adblocker.
Those Fb setting will only handle the type of ads you see on facebook.
