How Facebook Container works

Facebook Container works by isolating a user’s Facebook activities in a completely separate browser session, also known as a “Container”. After activating the utility and logging into Facebook, the page will load in a separate blue tab, meaning that you access Facebook from within the Container and not connected to the rest of the browser.

The free Mozilla extension will wipe Facebook cookies, sign out of websites, and close open Facebook tabs. Also other features like Like button, … on Facebook on other websites will not work.

Note: Facebook Container does not collect any information on Facebook as well as information on the container. Also the add-on can be conflicted with another add-on called Multi-Account Container, allowing the user to add one or more websites to the container.
