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 the ability others to track your browsing history.

Requires INTERNET permissions.
Feel free to check the source code here: https://github.com/velazcod/Tinfoil-Facebook

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.

If you have issues, please remember that Tinfoil is just a wrapper for the Facebook mobile site. Some things break on the site and there isn't much we can do to fix some issues. Sometimes forcing the user-agent helps (Preferences -> Mobile/desktop site -> Force mobile). If you find an issue and are completely it's a problem with Tinfoil please open a issue in the Github tracker: https://github.com/velazcod/Tinfoil-Facebook/issues

Recently changed in this version

- Fix some issues by removing the custom useragent when set to 'auto'
- Please remember this is just a wrapper to Facebook's mobile site and we have no much control of content and layout changes.

- Attempt to go around Facebook's A/B testing so that the mobile site that loads has the fixed comment box.
- Use 'most recent' as default sort order for newsfeed.
- Sanity check for URLs shared to Tinfoil so that the shared page properly loads the website intended to be shared.

    Please fix so you can upload photos. It never works. I had to start using the regular FB app. Great app otherwise.

    Awesome alternative. Sometimes you have to refresh it a few times before it loads though. Not sure if that's the app or Facebook itself.
