How to Disable Facebook Places

If the Facebook Places application feels a little too "Big Brother" to you, you might simply opt out of using this feature by never "checking in" anywhere. But, that's not enough to keep you geographically anonymous. It's still possible for other people to tag you and reveal your location to whoever they make their profile information available to (which could be everyone). Keep reading for detailed instructions.

Steps

  1. Disable Facebook Places Step 1.jpg

    Go to "Account" in the upper right hand corner and click on "Privacy Settings".
  2. Disable Facebook Places Step 2.jpg

    Click on "Customize Settings".
  3. Disable Facebook Places Step 3.jpg

    Look for "Places I check in to" and "Include me in "People Here Now" after I check in". Make sure the check box (Enable) next to "Include me in "People Here Now" after I check in" is unchecked.
  4. Disable Facebook Places Step 4.jpg

    Click on the dropdown menu next to "Places I check in to" and click on "Customize".
  5. Disable Facebook Places Step 5.jpg
    5
    In the box that shows up, select "Only Me" from the first dropdown menu. This is as private as it gets.
  6. Disable Facebook Places Step 6.jpg
    6
    Go back to privacy settings. Look for "Friends can check me in to Places" (it's in the section titled "Things Others Share". In the dropdown menu, select "Disabled".

how to Use Tinfoil for Facebook to protect your privacy on Android

The Facebook app and its Messenger counterpart have been met with a lot of criticism from users. Among the reviews, you'll find complaints about permission settings and the lack of features in each app when compared to the mobile Web UI.

As an alternative to these apps, a recent post on Lifehacker recommends that you check out Tinfoil for Facebook. The developer, Daniel Velazco, refers to this app as "a wrapper for Facebook's mobile site," but it's much more useful than it sounds. Behind the scenes, Tinfoil creates a sandbox for all of Facebook's cookies, storing them independently from your normal browser cookies. This keeps your information from being leaked and tracked across other websites. Here's how to get started:
 
Step 1: Install

Grab a copy of Tinfoil for Facebook on the Google Play Store. It's free!

                                                       Tinfoil for Facebook slide-out menu.

Step 2: Adjust the settings

Before using the app, you may want to tweak a few settings. Slide out the menu on the right-hand side of the screen and tap Preferences. Check the box next to Open links inside the app for additional sandboxing of your cookies (this should probably be a default). The rest of the settings are up to you: toggle the ability to check-in, block images, force a specific version of the site to load, or add a proxy.

                                                                Tinfoil for Android settings

Step 3: Extra precautions

Lifehacker's post reminded readers that the Tinfoil sandbox only works in one direction. If you're logged into other services (like your Google account), Facebook can use the data in those cookies to track your habits off its website. Ultimately this means that you'll need to logout of other services before opening Tinfoil for Facebook.

Note: Some users may have issues sharing photos through Tinfoil, but according to the developer, this occurs on Facebook's end as a result of testing features in waves.

Get started with Instagram's Hyperlapse app


Get started with Instagram's Hyperlapse app

Get started with Instagram's Hyperlapse app

Get started with Instagram's Hyperlapse app

Creating a time-lapse video using your iOS device just got a lot easier (without the help of iOS 8, mind you). On Tuesday, Instagram released a stand-alone app called Hyperlapse. The app is currently only available for iOS devices; sorry Android users, you'll need to wait until Google makes some API changes to the gyroscope and camera, according to Wired.

Upon launching the app for the first time you're walked through some example time-lapse videos, and then asked to grant permission for the app to access your Camera and Microphone. Obviously lacking is the need to connect the app to your Instagram account. That's right, Hyperlapse isn't directly tied to your Instagram account -- its primary job is to help you create videos.

Capturing

Recording a video through the android app is exactly what you'd expect from an iOS camera app. A tap on the white shutter button starts recording, with another tap to stop recording. Just under the shutter button you'll notice two different time indicators. The time on the left is the total time recorded, while the time opposite represents the time-lapse length at the default 6x setting.

You won't find an option to enable or disable the stabilization feature - it's baked in and on at all times. And after viewing a video in its "unstabilized" format, you'll be happy the app is designed this way.

Editing

Immediately after tapping the shutter button to stop recording, edit mode is launched. A slider allows you to adjust the speed of the video. With options ranging from 1x to 12x speed, you have complete control over how fast or slow the video plays back. Just keep in mind adjusting playback speed directly impacts the length of your video.

To view your video without the included stabilization feature, touch the screen as your video plays; "Unstabilized" will display along the bottom of the screen, showing you just how much better off you are when recording video within the app.

Sharing

Selecting the checkmark will save the video to your Camera Roll, followed by prompting you to share the video with either Instagram or Facebook. But as you already know, you can share content from your Camera Roll through various services.

Tapping on the red "X" will give you the option to delete the video, or save it within the app for editing later. Tap on the blue circle on the record screen to access your saved videos.
If you have a Hyperlapse video you're quite proud of, share a link to it in the comments. I have a feeling our Instagram feeds are going to be overrun with this feature for at least a few weeks.

How Do I Change My Email Notifications?


How Do I Change My Email Notifications?

 
How Do I Change My Email Notifications?

How Do I Change My Email Notifications?



The following is part of our series, Facebook Tips, which answers some of the most commonly asked questions about using Facebook. While we hope the tips we share on the blog will be informative, remember that we are unable to answer individual questions here. We'll always direct you to the Help Center for additional information about the topics we cover.


You don't have to be logged in to Facebook to get the latest updates from friends. Email notifications allow you to know when people interact with you on the site, whether through Wall posts, comments, tagged photos or friend requests. Similar to the notifications you see in the lower right hand corner on Facebook, email notifications let you know what's happening even when you aren't logged in.

You can manage email notifications by selecting the "Settings" link in the upper right hand corner of any page. From the Notifications tab, you can choose which actions you want to generate emails. For example, if you want to be notified by email each time someone writes on your Wall or receive weekly email digests about your friends' upcoming birthdays, just check the boxes next to these options. If you'd rather not be notified when people poke you or comment on your photos, just leave those boxes unchecked.

To change the email address associated with your account, select the "Settings" tab. You'll then see your current email address and can select "change" to add or delete addresses. Your Facebook email notifications will only be sent to the address you designate as your "Contact Email," so also be sure this information is accurate.

Protect your Facebook account from hackers

What to do if your Facebook Account has been hacked

Go to https://www.facebook.com/hacked and follow the instructions on-screen. You’ll go through three steps:
  1. Verify your account and change password.  You’ll be asked to identify your account, change your password, and change the password associated with the e-mail account that you use for Facebook.
  2. Review and fix anything the cybercriminal changed.
  3. Unlock account.

How to prevent your Facebook Account from being hacked

Security settings are the key.  So stop what you’re doing and print out this article.  Then log into Facebook and update these settings.
From Account settings, click on Security.  I recommend the following settings for the highest level of security.
1. Secure Browsing – enabled.
2. Login Notifications – enabled.
3. Login Approvals – enabled. 

This feature requires that you have a cell phone capable of receiving text messages.  When enabled, you will receive a code via text message if your account is accessed from an unrecognized location.

This is important for teens.  They may use computers at a friend’s house, the library, or other public locations.  As an example, if you are logging in to Facebook from a computer in the library, you’ll be asked to enter in a code.  You’ll receive the text message, know that it’s YOU using Facebook, and enter the code.  If you receive the text message and you WERE NOT trying to log into Facebook, you’ll know there is a problem.  And the hacker trying to get into your account will not have the code.


Protect your Facebook account from hackers

4. App Passwords – If you don’t have many apps associated with your Facebook account, you can probably leave this off.  If you do enable login approvals as described above, and you do use apps such as Skype through Facebook, then you may want to set app passwords.  You can read about this feature on Facebook Help and Inside Facebook.
5. Recognized Devices – if there is anything listed here that doesn’t look familiar, or the date is not recent, remove it.
6.  Active Sessions – remove all except Current session.

Your Security Settings page should now look something like this:
Protect your Facebook account from hackers
Facebook Security settings in the locked-down position

As a last step, go to General Account settings and change your Facebook password.  And finally, log out of Facebook when not in use.
Now with your Facebook account safe and secure, you can get back to important Facebook activities, such as post-election re-friending, without too much of a fear of hackers accessing your account
