Facebook Introduces Anonymous Logins to Apps

At Facebook F8 Developer Conference, Mark Zuckenberg announced that the company is improving the way Facebook apps handle access permissions.

Anonymous log ins should be a good news for the user since the app will not be able to access user data, profile information, friends’ list etc. In addition, the users will have more privacy.

Apps will have to get a permission before they can post on Facebook on your behalf.

Logging in to Facebook apps without revealing your identity to the app developer would be a great feature.

Anonymous log in does not mean users will be anonymous to Facebook, users will be anonymous to app makers.

In addition to the Anonymous Login and better controls over login permissions, Facebook is also redesigning its app permissions dashboard, making it easier for users to alter what permissions they have granted to their apps.
