Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg introduced Anonymous Login for third-party apps at the recently concluded F8 Developer Conference. With Anonymous Login, users can now login to new apps without creating a new account. The feature will specially help the users who are not comfortable to sign in by providing real details.
Facebook says it’s testing the new login option with select developers, including Flipboard. But, will soon add more developers to its list in coming days. When it comes to third-party apps, Facebook serves as a universal sign-in as it allowing people to click one “login with Facebook” button rather than remembering an endless number of usernames and passwords.
In addition to Anonymous Login, Facebook is also giving its users control over the types of information they share with apps when they want to use their Facebook identity to log in. Prior to this, apps could decide what information they wanted to access on people’s Facebook pages — such as people’s birthday, friends list or email address. Now, people can uncheck each, or all of these things.
