Security outfit MyPermissions released version 3.0 of its Android application, which provides users with a dashboard displaying all apps on their devices that are accessing personal data, including via Facebook and other social networks.
Most mobile applications include social logins, and Facebook Login is the most-used one by a healthy margin. At its F8 global developer conference in San Francisco Wednesday, the social network introduced a new Anonymous Login feature for developers to include in their apps, as well as a new version of its standard Login, and a redesigned app control panel.
Application security provider MyPermissions Thursday launched real-time application-permissions scanners in the form of apps for iOS and Android and a plugin for Google Chrome, aimed at keeping users in the loop on what personally identifiable information is being sought by apps.
Application security provider MyPermissions announced the launch of a privacy certification program for app developers, the MyPermissions Trust Certification, which it said is aimed at standardizing the policies and usage of personal information between developers and end-users.
When you connect with a Facebook application, how often do you pay attention to the fine print of what information the app wants from your profile? MyPermissions has launched a tool that allows users to see what the app wants from your profile, and also lets users delete apps straight from the MyPermissions Cleaner. It wants Facebook users to get a clean and safe start to 2013, also introducing a mobile app.
