Tinfoil for Facebook Prevents Facebook From Tracking Browser History [Android]

Just last month Facebook was under fire for snooping around the history records of the browser and sending information about every site visits and other online activities back to Facebook servers. Facebook has denied all allegation saying they use tracking cookies only to personalize content and make the social networking site more secure, and never to target ads. But we know better.

Tired of Facebook’s antics, one developer has created an Android app called Tinfoil for Facebook that creates a sandbox for Facebook's mobile site in order to protect your privacy and to avoid them from tracking your browsing history.

Tinfoil for Facebook is for those users who prefer to access Facebook through the mobile site instead of the Facebook app. By leaving the browser for web surfing and using Tinfoil for Facebook only to access Facebook’s mobile site, you prevent the social networking site from tracking your moves on the web.

Of course, you can just use another browser to access Facebook, but Tinfoil for Facebook makes browsing the site easier by providing several quick shortcuts to different parts of Facebook that can be accessed using the Menu button in your phone.

Besides, Tinfoil for Facebook is only 65KB in size.

Download Tinfoil for Facebook from the Market or by scanning the QRcode below with your phone.
