Facebook: Don't want people on your Facebook feed right-clicking, saving and sharing your photos? McAfee is beta testing a Facebook app and browser plug-in combination which changes where your pictures are stored and lets you control how they are accessed and shared.
Facebook's privacy controls aren't particularly robust and the settings change frequently. McAfee's app works around Facebook's limitations by uploading pictures to its own servers, and letting you specify exactly who can see them. Non-approved friends will see pictures blurred in your Facebook feed; approved friends also need to install the app to view the unblurred images.
Is this a perfect solution that guarantees privacy? Well, hardly. It won't let you control the pictures other people upload that feature you, and it won't stop a determined image grabber using sneaky screen capture systems to access a picture. It also requires the friends you do want to share with to also install the app. The browser extension used by the app also only works in IE and Firefox; for me, no Chrome is a deal breaker. But if you can live with all that, it will make life harder for casual image grabbers.
McAfee Social Protection is free to use during its current beta phase.
