Facebook Privacy Watcher Colour-Codes Your Privacy Settings

Firefox: Facebook’s privacy settings can get confusing quickly. Firefox extension Facebook Privacy Watcher seeks to correct that by colour-coding all of your information in a way that allows you to quickly glance at it to see the privacy settings.

Once Facebook Privacy Watcher is installed, it goes through your data and privacy settings, and then colour-codes your entries:

  • Green is a public post.
  • Orange is only visible to friends.
  • Red is only visible to you.
  • Blue is only visible to a subset of friends.

Facebook Privacy Watcher makes it easy to see your setting at a glance, and you can quickly change your privacy settings by clicking the post and changing the colour. It might not make sense to have it installed all the time, but it could help when you’re managing your Facebook privacy settings.
