Facebook debuts anonymous and selective login features
Facebook is upping their privacy options for users that don’t feel comfortable logging into the social network for everything. Let’s take a look at some of the new features Facebook is rolling out.
When users download an app, much of the time, there is a “login with Facebook” option. But wait, I just downloaded this app… I don’t even know if I like it, let alone trust it. Why should I give them my personal information already?
Facebook now has you covered, if you run into this problem frequently. Once users learn more about the app they’re using, they will have the ability to share more information, if need be. Facebook are currently testing out the new login procedures with a few select developers for now, but will likely roll it out to everyone in the near future.
Take a look at the short walkthrough for Anonymous Login:
Revamped Facebook Login
When an application would like to use your Facebook information, you’ve never really had a choice to what the can or cannot access. With this new Login feature, users can now alter what exactly the app has access to. You don’t want the app to have access to your friends list? Simply uncheck it from the list… it’s that easy!
Here’s another short walkthrough video explaining a bit more:
Users should begin seeing changes as Facebook moves forward with the new Login features.
