Untangle® launches SaveFace™
Provides Facebook® users with a free tool to enhance their privacy
SAN JOSE, Calif., May 18, 2010 - Untangle, Inc., a network software company, today announced a new free utility to help Facebook® users easily regain control of their privacy, called SaveFace™.
SaveFace is a simple-to-install bookmark utility that, when invoked, automatically changes your Facebook settings so that only your Friends can see your information. This includes Photo Groups, your profile, your wall, and a host of other content that Facebook now makes public by default. The app runs in the user’s browser – Untangle has no access to user data during the process.
Untangle, an established network security company, will increasingly concentrate on the enforcement of user privacy and data protection rights. Walters said: “After all, without these two, how can you be secure?”
Untangle actively invites and encourages everyone to download, modify, and distribute SaveFace.
Walters concluded: “Let’s all work together to make the internet a safer place.”
Availability and Pricing
“Facebook® started as a ‘gated’ community within Harvard. Then many gated communities. But Facebook’s pursuit of first size then advertising models left the privacy of gates in the dust. And recent actions and security breaches have turned user fear into resentment. Facebook remains a valuable service to most users, it’s time to empower users to take their private data back - and to allow everybody to SaveFace.”
