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

- Use a wide viewport in order to try to avoid images going off screen
- New icon using material design specs by Constantin Eckstein
- Bug fixes
- Please remember this is just a wrapper to Facebook's mobile site and we have no much control of content and layout changes.

    No need to install messenger if you have this, great for light browsing, and snappy when it wants to be. Add picture posting functionality and this will become 5 stars.

    I got tired of the official Facebook app simply doing whatever the hell it pleases and draining my battery all day long so I gave this a shot based on a recommendation from a blog. Now, my battery magically has 40-60% remaining at the end of my work day rather than 20-30%. HOW WEIRD. If you are sick of the privacy violations and push notifications of the official app, Tinfoil is highly recommen

    Lets face it. The official FB app keeps getting more bloated with every useless update, and then forcing Messenger on us to IM people was a dumb move. Luckily this app fixes all of that. It's all in one, the way it should be. Theres a couple little things that I'd gripe about but its nothing compared to how the official app is, lol.

    There's an issue with the Facebook mobile site that has to do with inputting text sometimes it freezes up, and doesn't allow you to erase or enter text I wish this app would override it

    I like how this looks better and requires less permissions than the regular app. However, there is an issue where all pictures are really small and I can't seem to enlarge them. Also, I haven't received any notifications.
