Is that possible, really? Yeah, you read that right. You can enjoy Facebook apps without compromising your personal details. And, if you really care about your Facebook profile, then a Google Chrome Extension is highly recommended as a Facebook security shield for you and yeah that goes to all those virtual farmers(Farm-ville) and even those dreadful Mafias(yeah you are not safe too). Not to mention, Facebook Apps is the hotspot why so many Facebook users have to compromise their Facebook accounts, where few of them were not able to recover it too. HACKED!! Phew!! Gone!!
Lets Check What Personal Information You Share With Facebook Apps.
- Name, Profile Picture, Gender, Networks, User ID, List of Friends, and any other information I’ve made public. And you never know, where these Facebook App Developer are using your information and don’t ask the purpose now.
- Birthday and Current City(uninvited guests).
- Facebook Apps can mail you directly, one more notification to your inbox. Not to mention, what they can actually do with your email IDs in hands.
- Facebook Apps can post on your wall without your permission.
But you can stop them and you should. You should protect your personal information on social networks. Here’s how.
fPrivacy – Google Chrome Extension Stop Sharing Your Personal Information With Facebook Apps
- fPrivacy, install this Google Chrome Extension which acts as a Facebook security shield using which, you can stop Facebook Apps to use your personal information.
- Working is simple, whenever you are out to act all Ninja, wanna chop fruits, or about to conquer the world, being a Mafia of your tribe, select the information you want to compromise with the Facebook Apps. My recommendation – share the minimum personal information with them.
- The one, who are using this Google Chrome Extension, will be first prompted before using the Facebook to select the personal information they want to share. Click on Update and there you are an unknown fruit chopper, with the bare minimum information being compromised.
Still not convinced? Let me show you the difference. Here’s are two images which depicts the personal information being shared with Facebook Apps without the use of fPrivacy and later is the one where the user is using one. Makes sense. Isn’t it?
So that’s how you can protect your information from being compromised with the Facebook Apps, you play. Now go, tell your friends about this too.
