Farewell, Facebook.

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

Dear friends! We deeply regret to announce:

As of Aug 1, 2018, it will no longer be possible to upload photos from Phixr to Facebook, as Facebook decided to disable this feature entirely (for all apps).

But as if that wasn’t sad enough, they also try to force app developers into signing an agreement that would allow FB and employed third parties (attorneys, consultants, forensic analysts, etc) to perform random “audits” (ie private searches) of our premises, books, technologies, servers etc. And that is only the tip of the iceberg; other “obligations” include forcing our hardware provider to sign this agreement as well, and keeping this entire agreement a secret. This agreement is entirely unacceptable and we, of course, will not sign it.

As a consequence, as of Aug 1, 2018, Phixr will no longer support Facebook in any way and ultimately disappear as a FB app. Please start using our website directly, simply go to http://www.phixr.com or one of the international versions (such as http://es.phixr.comhttp://pt.phixr.com or http://de.phixr.com )
