Tinfoil for Facebook

Available in :
Tinfoil for Facebook is for those users that require a Tinfoil Hat when logging in to Facebook. It creates a sandbox for Facebook's mobile site in order to protect your privacy and to avoid them tracking your browsing history.

Requires INTERNET permissions, and if you are skeptic about it, feel free to check the source code here:

It also requires the "COARSE_LOCATION" permission. This is NOT used UNLESS you enable "Allow Check-ins" on the preferences, otherwise Check-ins won't work. This option is disabled by default.

- Icon by simperton (reddit)
- Bugfix: Orientation changes were not being handled properly (Thanks vondruska)
- Allow Check-ins (Optional, only uses coarse location to save battery)
- Handle requests for URLs
- Option to open links from inside the app
- Ability to switch what site to open, mobile or desktop (Default is automatic)
- Ability to share links and text from other apps using the default Send/Share intent
- Support for Android 2.1+ (Please test this and let me know, I only tested on emulator)

Yay Faster and less hassle than the official app

by Cory the 12/15/2011

Great Everything works great. The only problem I have is when looking at pictures half of it is cut off.

Excellent My favorite app for when I have to use facebook. This app is the best of all possible evils.

by mike the 12/7/2011

Privacy AND performance Not only does it sandbox facebook to address privacy concerns, but the interface is better than the Facebook app! It is fast and much easier to use.

by Victor the 12/6/2011

nearly perfect ..... not bad, I used it because my stock android app took up too much memory and kept crashing. This takes up less memory space but I'm not overly happy about the frequent need to log in so often .... :p

Love it! Keep up the great work!

Must have I liked the old icon better but I love this application. It's easier to use than the Android application and keeps my browsing data private.
