Facebook Privacy Defender

With constant privacy policy changes, murky details and entangled information sharing settings, Privacy Defender might just be the solution users are looking for.

PrivacyDefender is an easy to use tool that automatically configures your Facebook privacy settings. All you need to do is select your desired level of privacy protection and PrivacyDefender does the rest.

Definitely not a new idea – ReclaimPrivacy and SaveFace already did that before. So what’s different PrivacyDefender has to offer? Well, a cleaner interface, to start with, and an innovative visual representation of what’s being shared and how altering a few settings changes your visibility on Facebook and who gets affected.


PrivacyDefender works through a combination of a Facebook application and a bookmark for your browser. Here’s how it works.

1. Visit the Privacy Defender Facebook page

2. On the home page, there are instructions on how to add the bookmark to your browser toolbar. For Internet Explorer users, you will have to right-click on the PrivacyDefender grey button and select "Add to your Favorites". For all other browsers, you can simply drag the grey button to your bookmark toolbar (or you can still right-click and add it if you prefer).

3. Click on the Privacy Defender link to evaluate your current privacy settings

4. Choose one of the 3 level of privacy you would prefer. You can get a preview of the changes it will make.

5. Click on Fix My Privacy to make the changes.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
