It was promised to reach final yr, after which was delayed till “spring 2019.” Sadly, nonetheless, it is apparently been delayed even additional. At an occasion at Fb at this time to go over the corporate’s newest integrity efforts, VP of Integrity Man Rosen mentioned that the “Clear Historical past” function has been pushed to fall of this yr.
Based on Rosen, the reasoning behind it is because the crew wished to make sure that it is finished in the fitting method. “We’re working to reengineer our techniques, and the way we course of that information in order that we will do it proper,” he mentioned. “That is why it is taking extra time than anticipated.”
Be that as it might, it is nonetheless unclear why this privacy-oriented instrument is taking properly over a yr to debut, particularly since Zuckerberg had initially mentioned it might be out solely in just a few months. We could have to attend till F8 — or maybe later — to seek out out why.
