Warning About FB Pixel - How To Find Out If You Are Affected

Hey there,

I have once posted a message about many other domains being found to send data through my own pixel. Here is the post: Found weird domains in Facebook Ads Traffic Permissions - Check yours too, may be hacked
https://community.shopify.com/c/ecommerce-marketing/found-weird-domains-in-facebook-ads-traffic-perm...

 

This means that other store owners (presumably competitors), all of which are from Shopify in my case, are placing my pixel on their websites. I have not yet completely figured out the reason behind that but I assume it's  to distort my pixel data and make my ads less effective. 

 

To find out whether you are affected go to your Events Manager -> Settings -> scroll down to Traffic Permissions -> go through the domains sending data through your pixel.

 

If you find some that you do not know like I found the ones below, then either add them to a blocked list or add your domain(s) to the allowed list. This way there will be no other domains sending data to your pixel.

I hope you can solve these issues if you are affected as well

 

In other words...Kick these snitches in the butt and keep rolling;)

 

PS: If it helps you be a pal and give this message a thumbs up for a slight ego boost and help others find the post
