How to Clear Facebook Browsing Data? In older versions of the Android and iOS Facebook app, when you tapped on one of the browser links, it would open in any web browser app previously installed on your smartphone. But in the latest versions of the Facebook app, the external links do not open in any third-party web browser. Now, however, the Facebook app opens within the Facebook app itself and gives you the option to open them in other browser apps. Like other web browsers, the Facebook app stores some of the data that accumulates when you browse external links in its own app. For example, browsing history, cookies and other similar data continues to accumulate in Facebook. So how to clear browsing data in both mobile and web browsers.
