At its annual developer conference, the F8, facebook introduced a new way to log into external apps, and that too without sharing your personal info : Anonymous login.
Facebook introduced anonymous login at F8, a brand new way to log into apps without sharing any personal information from Facebook, along with a new version of Facebook Login with even better privacy controls.
Now, if you’re worried about sharing your personal info with external apps, Facebook has found a remedy for it. Use anonymous login, and you can browse all the content on the external app without revealing your identity.
Anonymous Login lets people log in to apps so they don’t have to remember usernames and passwords, but it doesn’t share personal information from Facebook. People can decide later if they want to share any additional information, once they understand more about the app.
Facebook has currently opened the anonymous login to a selected set of developers and plans to open it to more. Although the new login feature is currently being tested, it is due to roll out soon.
