Privacy issue


When I post a review, some of my friends who also use Tripadvisor get an email with notification that I have recently visited some place and left a review.

How can I switch off this feature? Because it's not good for me to let everyone now about my travelings.

I make contributions to help people to make a right choice, not to share with somebody where and when have I been!

Go to Account Profile

Under Facebook setting make sure all are un-ticked.

In Facebook make sure you block the TA app from posting on your behalf

Apparently 6 million Facebook users had their email contacts distributed to all and sundry without their knowledge

No need to delete ALL your cookies. Many cookies store important information that you will need to re-enter if you removed them all. If you wish to delete cookies, only remove Facebook's and TripAdvisor's.

In Facebook, you need to go to your privacy settings, the look of the left column for Apps. Once you're in App Settings, take a look at Instant Personalization, and either turn it off or uncheck Tripadvisor (other websites are listed automatically too).
