Facebook has unveiled a new tool that lets users log in to apps anonymously so they do not have to share information from their profile. Currently many applications allow users to log in with their Facebook profiles. However, many web users are wary about this as they are forced to let their data be siphoned off before they know anything about the app. Facebook has attempted to counter these concerns with its Anonymous Login service, so people can log in with their Facebook account, but not share any data. Users can choose to sign in with their account in full at a later date. The firm said: “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.” As well as introducing this functionality, Facebook also improved its normal login service, by giving users more control over the information they share with specific apps and other websites. <more>
