The Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Wednesday that company is introducing an anonymous login feature, which allows users to access applications for smartphones and tablets without sharing their personal information stored in social network.
The announcement was made during F8 developer conference according to which Anonymous Login is a sign in mechanism to log into apps without sharing any personal information from Facebook.
According to the release, Anonymous Login feature will help the company to handle user’ privacy concerns. It said,
People tell us they’re sometimes worried about sharing information with apps and want more choice and control over what personal information apps receive. Today’s announcements put power and control squarely in people’s hands.
- Anonymous Login: An easy way for people to try an app without sharing any of their personal information from Facebook.
- Facebook Login: A new version that gives people the option to pick and choose what information apps get.
- A Redesigned App Control Panel: A central place for people to see and manage the apps they use.
In simple words, the Anonymous Login feature has been developed for people who like to try new apps but not willing to share their personal information in order to login.
It 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, it added.
