Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced at the company’s F8 developers’ conference last year that a “Clear History” tool would be offered to users. It would allow them to delete their account history. The tool was supposed to be released last year but it was delayed to “spring 2019.” The company has now confirmed that it has been delayed once again.


Facebook’s VP of Integrity Guy Rosen confirmed today that the Clear History tool has been delayed to the fall of 2019. The reason for this latest delay is apparently because the team requires more time to ensure that this is done right.

“We’re working to reengineer our systems, and how we process that data so that we can do it right,” he said, adding “That’s why it’s taking more time than anticipated.” There’s really no detailed explanation as to why the development of this feature is taking so long, particularly when Zuckerberg had initially said last year that the tool would be out in a matter of months.

A confirmed date has still not been provided so one can only hope that this new timeframe is accurate and the tool does arrive before the year is over. Perhaps Facebook will share more about the tool at its upcoming F8 conference.
