Facebook introduces Anonymous Login for apps to let you hide personal info
The Anonymous Login feature for apps gives more control in the hands of users who can choose what personal information these apps receive.

New Delhi: In a bid to help preserve your privacy when sharing data with third-party apps, Facebook has introduced an Anonymous Login feature that lets you log into apps without sharing personal information.

This new way of logging into apps gives more control in the hands of users who can choose what personal information these apps receive.

Facebook also announced a new version of Facebook Login that gives people the option to pick and choose what information apps get by checking or unchecking categories one by one. It also doesn't allow the app to post to Facebook without permission.

Other improvements announced at the f8 developers' conference include a redesigned App Control Panel, which the company notes in its blog is a central place for people to see and manage the apps they use.

With the Anonymous Login feature, Facebook is trying to address the concern of its users who want to try out certain apps but are not ready to share any information about themselves.

Logging in anonymously will let users have access to the app without worrying about their information being accessed by the app. Users can still choose to share any additional information, if they prefer, at a later stage.

It is currently being tested with a few developers, and Facebook plans to extend it to more developers in the coming months.

While the new Login will be rolled out in the next few months, the updated app control panel will be available in the coming weeks.
