ReclaimPrivacy: How to Reclaim Your Facebook Privacy!

There's been a great deal of press recently regarding Facebook's privacy (or lack of it!)

ReclaimPrivacy - provides an independent and open tool for scanning your Facebook privacy settings.  (Thanks Kurt!)

Four Steps to Reclaim Your Facebook Privacy:

  1. Open Internet Explorer, Safari, or Chrome (FireFox currently has some issues)

  2. <Right-Click> --> ReclaimPrivacy selecting "Add to Favorites"

  3. Login & view your Facebook Privacy Settings

  4. While logged into Facebook, click (& run) the bookmark from Step #2

ReclaimPrivacy Results = You will see a series of privacy scans that inspect your privacy settings and warn you about settings that might be unexpectedly public.
