An intuitive and reliable software application that allows you to keep track of your Facebook privacy from the comfort of your desktop
The program is able to deal with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ accounts and on top of this, it also lends a hand to parents who want to control the type of content their children access.
With MyFacePrivacy, you will be able to fully keep tabs on how Facebook (or other social networks) handle the type of content you upload, as well as how tagging is done and the way your personal information is displayed.
During the first launch, you will be asked to choose the social network to work with, then to specify the username and login in order to access the main window of the application. Here, you will be welcomed by a set of built-in privacy levels, from Unrestricted, which makes virtually anything on your profile available to everyone to Maximum Privacy, where sharing is restricted to your close friends only.
However, these built-in scenarios can be entirely customized through the Advanced Settings section, where you can personalize settings related to posts, who can see your content and who can contact you.
There’s also the possibility to put restrictions on the tagging feature and to decide who can see your application activity and personal information. You can also customize the way ad networks are to behave and to have the application scan your Facebook profile regularly and send notifications once changes are detected.
Keep in mind that the setting layout changes once you pick another social network. There may be fewer options on Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+, due to the internal structure of each of them.
All in all, MyFacePrivacy comes across as a highly flexible privacy manager. The greatest advantage of working with it is that the changes will be preserved no matter how and from where you access your social network accounts.
