Facebook has been testing a new feature using which user can sign-up for an ad with two-taps that will auto-fill their email address, phone number or other info they have registered with Facebook.

According to the Techcrunch, Facebook is testing these 'Lead Ads' with a small group of businesses around the world to gain feedback before considering to release them.

Facebook's ads can auto-fill information like Name, Email, Street Address, Phone, Zip, City, State, Country, Company Name and Job Title.

Users will have to click the call-to-action button like 'Subscribe' and then 'Submit' their info once they have reviewed what was auto-filled. Users can edit that info inside the ads and businesses only get what is voluntarily submitted. Advertisers can only use the data in accordance with a mini-privacy policy they embed in the ad and cannot resell it to anyone else.
