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.

Recently changed in this version

- Ability to set a proxy. If Orbot is installed, a request to start it and connect will be made if a proxy is set.
- Android 4.4+ does not allow picture uploads due to a known bug in the Android OS. No workaround can be made at this point.

- Target latest SDK (Android 4.4) in order for Tinfoil to take advantage of the new WebView based on the Chrome engine, performance is improved on Android 4.4 devices.

    I got sick of the regular Facebook app asking for more and more permissions that I didn't want to give it.

    I got sick of all the permissions Facebook asks for, so I moved to tinfoil because it was recommended on Reddit. One thing I don't get is the events page often thinks I'm in NYC. What gives?

    Things that work fine on the mobile site seem broken in the app suddenly. Had the app for over a year. I can't post a status update in the app now, but I can on the mobile site. It's really annoying...

    If I install Facebook on my phone it would just die on first run. This is much better though feels a bit slower than using in default browser
