Considering Facebook's track record when it comes to respecting users' privacy, it's somewhat surprising that they would now provide the option for anonymous logins when accessing a third-party app. This gives you a chance to test out an app without revealing any of your personal info. Like the app? Login as yourself and decide just how much information to share with the app.
Sometimes people want to try out apps, but theyre not ready to share any information about themselves. For this, were introducing a way to log in to apps anonymously.
Anonymous Login lets people log in to apps so they dont have to remember usernames and passwords, but it doesnt share personal information from Facebook. People can decide later if they want to share any additional information, once they understand more about the app.
