Deleting cell number and address from Facebook account

Deleting cell number and address from Facebook account 
Facebook
Facebook is now allowing third party app developers to access the information of address and mobile phone number of the users. That means the private information of the user will be made public.

Every time the Facebook user installs a Facebook app, they are asked if they like to share their basic information with the third party app developers. Information like current address as well as mobile phone number of the user will be shared, upon acceptance from the user’s side. If the user clicks on the button ‘Allow’, the basic information of that user will be shared with the app developer. In general, people are habituated to click on the allow button without understanding the risks involved. It is better to remove the basic information from Facebook profile. This will be the safest way to ensure that the basic information is not passed to the developers.

How to remove the basic information from Facebook profile

  • After getting logged in to Facebook profile, click on the Home button
  • Choose ‘Edit My Profile’ option
  • ‘Contact Information’ option will be seen in the bottom side of the left column
  • Fields such as Address, Mobile phone and Other phone are left blank
  • If they are present, remove it and save the changes
