Facebook is the most problematic social media platform in terms of privacy and user safety. To cite just one case, in September 2019 it was revealed that Mark Zuckerberg's company kept more than 400 million phone numbers without protection.
Without the development of social networking privacy, access to your personal data is at significant risk, a risk you can avoid when using an anonymous profile. Next, we explain step by step how to build Facebook without knowing your privacy.
How to create an anonymous Facebook profile section step by step
1º- Get a new email or phone number
To sign up for a new account on Facebook you need to enter your email or phone number. If you want this new profile to be completely anonymous, you must find an email account or phone number you don't have your details.
To do this, you can create your new email account or phone number from 0 (always making sure you don't enter your data), or you can use other apps available in the Play Store to they give you emails and numbers temporarily. In our case we have chosen Temp Mail to receive an anonymous email account, and we have been able to receive emails sent by Facebook within the app itself.
This way, you'll get the personal address needed to register on Facebook w ithout compromising your details. If you decide to do it with a phone number, you can find out for a while with programs like Hushed or Burner, which work similar to Temper Mail.
2º- Separates the official Facebook app
Even if you refuse the permissions of the Facebook app, they may find new ways to access your phones or your location, for example. To prevent this from happening, because you want to have 100% anonymous profile, you should separate the official Facebook app from your phone data using the island app, early access to the Play Store.
After downloading this app, open it and accept the different windows that will appear that reach the main Island menu. To separate the Facebook app, you must first make sure you have it installed on your phone. After enter Mainland -In the bottom left corner of the screen-, select Facebook and then click the square button with + it will appear on the bottom left for Mainland install a customized Facebook app.
If you go to your mobile app's menu, you will now see that you have a separate space where you can see a customized Facebook app, known for having a bag icon. If you confirm that it exists, you can delete the official Facebook app and live alone with the Clone, separate from your personal information.
3º- Install VPN
The next step to have an anonymous profile on Facebook is to install on your phone a VPN – a virtual private network – similar to CyberGhost, one of the best VPN services today. Without disabling access to your location, the social networking app can track your whereabouts, so it's best to use one of these private networking networks. protect your site.
In view of our anonymous profile we have used VyprVPN, one of the many applications of this style found in the Play Store. After downloading and opening the app, go to Customize> App Connectivity> Facebook to allow the VPN to work with that application.
4º- Disable Facebook site
If you haven't already done so, continue to disable Facebook's Location History, which saves all the sites you use on the Mark Zuckerberg networking site – whose privacy is worth over $ 20 million. You can do it from the app or the web version of Facebook to enter Settings> Location
5º- Create your new Facebook account
Having completed the previous steps, it is time to finally create that anonymous Facebook account that will allow you to be present on social media without compromising your privacy. Go to Facebook.com and select "Create a new account" enter your name and birthday (better than the original) and set the access password.
Next, you will have to decide whether to register the new profile with your email account or your phone number, we have already realized that both can be temporary so that you do not risk your data. Be selective, you will receive a message code to enter on Facebook to confirm the creation of a new account. Also, select the "Subscribe without uploading contacts" option to not share that information with the app.
6º- Configure the privacy of your Facebook profile
After logging into Facebook with the account you just signed up for, it is recommended that you install the app to configure privacy, because the default settings are not 100% secure. To do this, pay special attention to shortcuts to privacy,
7º- Block Facebook hidden permissions
Yes, fully blocking Facebook permissions is as strange as it seems, because, as we mentioned earlier, the app uses various methods to access your important information. So, and as a last step, you can choose block hidden permissions to plant all obstacles What do you need before the company?
Blocking that hidden access is not easy, since Do you need root or use ADB commands to do it with the App Ops app. This tool lets you control those settings that run from Android, usually or a specific application, which is what you should do with Facebook to deny all permission.
After these 7 steps, you will have set up an anonymous Facebook profile and you will have blocked all permissions on the social network app, so you are guaranteed to have no access to your private data. So, you can use the platform knowing that your privacy is not compromised, that Facebook is unreasonably infringing.
