A chrome extension that helps you by highlighting permissions on login pop ups
What is it?
A chrome extension that highlights the requested permissions of Facebook login pop-ups.
More and more services use social logins, from which Facebook is the most used one. However since the last redesign is it not clear anymore which permissions are asked for when logging into a website. Some of the more than 100 permissions are just shown in a long string and it is hard to see what the app really asks for. The reduced transparency sets users at risk to accept permissions they otherwise would not have agreed on. This is where fbPermission helps. By clearly highlighting the requested permissions it can be seen in a few seconds if the app asks for reasonable information.
Here are some stats from one of the more recent studies about the impact of fb-login:
92% report having left a website when they’ve forgotten their username or password.
87% of consumers are aware of social login, and more than half have tried it.
Facebook login is the most used social login with 45% world wide.
Transparency: Make it easy and intuitive to see requested permissions.
Understandable: Offer a tooltip to every requested permission.
Customization: Supports full tailoring to meet your needs.
privacy: It's self contained, no data is sent to 3rd parties.
