Like everybody knows Facebook ignores the privacy compleatly.

So I would like to allow users to login via Facebook without breaking their privacy or non Facebook users. Curriently I'm using the modules Fbconnect, OpenID Selector, OpenID Selector for Drupal login and OpenID Selector for Facebook Connect.

I want to allow the users to log in like in stack exchange. This works almost so like expected except the Facebook stuff. The plugin adds to everypage a stupid link to Facebook. So Facebook can spy my users. How can I avoid that?

Is it possible that I download the http://connect.facebook.net/xx_XX/all.js script and put it on my space? Or maybe to proxy the access and cache the file. Does anyone know if some of my ideas are forbidden by Facebook?

  • Hi Rekire, I can suggest you a module called Janrain engage drupal.org/project/rpx , this does not add links, it helps you during the registration to collect the user data as well. Have a look to it. Apr 20, 2012 at 15:38

If you really care about your users privacy then you shouldn't use a third party service like Janrain but instead communicate directly with the Facebook API. You can do that with the OAuth Connector module for Drupal 7 as it supports signing up and logging in through OAuth 2 API:s and specifically states that Facebook is one of the API:s that works with it.

  • I will check this. Janrain is not the best option but I doesn't want that the clients will load any ressources from facebook directly.

  • Could you add some more advice how to setup that module? The documentation is not very helpful.

  • I have no hands on experience with configuring the current version - I built the original version, but others are maintaining it now. The way it used to work was that you added a couple of services you wanted users to be able to log in with and then placed a block with all log in buttons in the place of your site where you wanted them to appear. Any specific thing you're wondering about?
