    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:

    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:

    This was an excellent app until the latest update. The new update causes the application to lose internet connection after just one or two excursions to an outside article. When you move back into the app, it loses all connectivity, and says "no internet connection."

    I came here to write this review after being impressed by the sheer efficiency that this application runs with. I might add that the phone I am using hasn't the best components available for demanding applications, too. I have tried a good few Facebook alternatives and so far, this one is the only one that successfully filled the first bit of criteria that I was seeking: it is lightweight and efficient, as best as possible, when it comes to Facebook. As far as I can tell as a general scroller and ranter, it supports all points of interest that mobile Facebook presents with the exception of the messaging service, which it would seem is meant to be a supported feature but currently doesn't operate properly. You are shown how many unread messages you have in your inbox in the app', but notifications and actual messaging (even reading them) so far will require some modification on the developer's part to work - otherwise, users are constantly asked to 'download the messenger app', even if that is already installed on the same device. This is the *only* reason that I have refrained from adding a fifth star rating. Everything else, I would humbly suggest is uncontestedly better coding than its competitors, and furthermore than the original resource-hog that is the official Facebook Application. Personally, I can deal with having to use the official Messenger App', which in my opinion is leagues more stable and faster than the official browser. If one were going all-official, I would be forced to use two separate app's, no loss. In case you were wondering and have read this far, if there are any advertisements attached to this application at the moment, then I haven't bloody seen them. Great work, Daniel.

    When you tap a post to read the article, and then tap the return button to go back to tinfoil, the initial post is gone! Frustrating!!
