MyPermissions
You can review your Facebook permissions from within the MyPermissions add-in itself.

Privacy and social networking have never been a hotter topic, and discovering just how many apps have access to your various social networks can be a sobering thought, particularly as you’ll probably not remember half of them even exist, never mind that you signed up for them.

MyPermissions is a free browser add-in for Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari that allows you to review – and crucially edit – permissions for all the apps and services linked to a wide range of online accounts: Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo!, LinkedIn, Dropbox, Instagram, FourSquare, Windows Live, AOL and Flickr. More will no doubt follow in due course.

For now, the add-in automatically scans your Facebook apps and lists them along with their permissions, making it easy for you to edit individual permissions or remove unwanted apps with a single click (simply untick those apps you wish to keep before clicking the Remove button). Other buttons merely provide a link to the service’s own apps page where you can revoke access manually – you’ll either go directly to the page or be asked to log in first.

Better still, the add-in will also alert you via its status bar icon whenever an app from a supported service (Facebook, Google, Twitter, Instagram, Yahoo! or Dropbox) accesses your personal information, you know what’s going on and when.

Does it work? Yes it does, and by visiting the service’s FAQ page you can be reassured that you’re not trading one form of privacy compromise for another.

Note that this is the version for Google Chrome.

Verdict:


If you’re worried about privacy and security, MyPermissions provides a convenient central location for keeping on top of who’s got what access to your personal information.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
