😉Why sacrifice your privacy or an awesome user experience when you can have both? Meet Swipe, the best Facebook alternative - lightweight, highly customizable, and battery friendly, with a strict “no tracking” policy to ensure your privacy is secured.

It isn’t really a secret - the official app is bloated, slow, power hungry, and doesn’t have your privacy in mind. Many alternatives have tried, but surely, you’ve found most just lack in overall quality. 

That’s why Swipe is your answer - with a robust day/night theming engine, Messages access built-in (Chat Heads included), customizable widget for your notifications and messages, as well as an ad blocker to filter out the noise, you’ll find lots to love.

🌈FACEBOOK & MESSENGER – CHAT HEADS INCLUDED

When you can have both for less than 5MB, the decision in 2014 to split the most popular social media app doesn’t really make much sense. Switching to Swipe saves you hundreds of MB on your phone, so that you can use the extra space saved for things that matter most.

As an added bonus, Swipe comes with Chat Heads too! Keep on chatting away with friends even when you’re using another app.

🔒BLOCK ADS, PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY

No one likes them, and in Swipe, you don’t have to endure them! There are absolutely no advertisements from Swipe, and sponsored content from Facebook can be blocked as well. There’s also no tracking in Swipe - your connection is encrypted and any data you share goes directly to Facebook’s servers.

🎨THE BEST DAY/NIGHT THEMING ENGINE EVER!

Swipe’s theming engine is next-level. There’s just no comparison. 

While theming isn’t new, you can now assign each theme element their own color (you can even put in hex codes). If tinkering isn’t for you, we have some beautiful preset ones we’re sure you’ll love!

You can even change how the app looks and feels – whether tabs are at the top or bottom, titles are centered or left-aligned, card or flat views, and whether to use the classic Floating Action Button or the modern swipe up Bottom Sheet Menu.

The icing on the cake is that you can set these separately for both the day and night themes, and themes can switch automatically in the morning and evening.

🎴WIDGETS LET NOTIFICATIONS LIVE AT HOME

Read your latest notifications and messages right on your home screen, without having to open the app. The widget is automatically updated as you use the app and when notifications are fetched.

Swipe’s Widget is just as customizable as the app itself, allowing you to pick just about any color your heart desires – or even make it transparent to let your wallpaper shine through!

🔔FULL CONTROL OF YOUR NOTIFICATIONS

Not only can you receive both notifications from Facebook and Messenger, but you can even set up quiet hours (when notifications shouldn’t come through) and filters (items you don’t want to be notified about). 

🎬DISCREET PHOTO & VIDEO DOWNLOADS

Downloading photos and videos in Swipe is not only easy, it is more importantly discreet – without notifying the person or page about the download.

👀KEEP PRYING EYES AWAY WITH SECURITY LOCK

It isn’t uncommon to hand your phone to a friend or family member to show them a funny video or interesting photo. Keep your Facebook account safe from others by setting up Security Lock and requiring a PIN code or fingerprint to open the app.

---

There is much, much more that makes Swipe the best Facebook alternative out there, but I think it’s time to give it a spin yourself. 

It’s better in every single way. You’ll feel it.

Reviews From google play store

Really nice, smooth as butter, theme are great and I paid to be finally free of Ads. Tested few years ago I came back to it now and I can see a lot of improvements good job. The official Facebook app slutter and lag on my Mate 20 pro si swipe is a peferct alternative.


Brilliant lightweight replacement for 2 super heavy and resource hungry memory hog ie facebook and messenger.A full fledged theme engine with dark modes and material design. Ability to remove friend suggestions, stories, adverts (paid) from the feed.Reduced one star for 2 bugs, which causes messenger to trigger notification after sending a message (with the sent text in body, not reply)+long press like button to get the panel of available emotions, takes forever. EDIT:ALL BUGS FIXED, THANKS DEV!


a nice alternative to the bloatware that is Facebook. Would be nice to be able to select save folder destination. Has issues with videos... I've 'saved' videos but can't find them on my phone, live streams don't always work and for some reason the messenger part no longer recognises when any of my friends are online. I'd clear memory or delete and reinstall, but as there's no save/reload preferences option, I'd have to set it up all over again.


Mostly a good experience. Has some delays every now and then. I wish gifs were integrated into the photo posting options. Notifications don't update correctly all the time. Still like it more than the other FB wrappers!!


Is very good but doesn't give some news feed, like friends feeds. Give update also to improve it, n it also Freeze's at times so work on it n i don't know if it is my network but I don't think so. it also slow


Very good attempt at a true FB app, rather than just a wrapper. Worth considering if you want to copy text and download videos. Friendly has a slight advantage as it downloads bigger images and the HD version of videos.


I like it for the most part. Has the most features of any Facebook "wrapper" I've found so far. Just one thing that I don't like is when I'm following a post and I get notifications about people commenting, it does not allow me to click the 3 dots menu to unfollow the post because the header (like the Group name) to the page takes over that space so when I click on it it takes me to my news feed instead


The app isn't as smooth as Facebook app. The time line updating algorithm is very bad. Time line will show empty on no or bad connection even if it's already leaded before. The app is super sensitive to touches and will trigger tens of false touches. Messenger thing usually takes me to the first message in a conversation even if it's not the recent one. That happens in few conversations, not all of them. Messenger heads doesn't play media such as attached video.


I shaved off a star because when I'm using data, it automatically goes to free mode and the option to turn it off is something I have NOT been able to find, and it is rather annoying. Otherwise, great app.


Thank you for this app!!! I absolutely HATE fakebook but it is required for my job. You've made things so much easier with this fantastic UI. I came back to see what other apps you've designed and figure out how to throw you a couple of bucks. Rock on!


I don't get any notifications when I have new messages (unless you count the message # when the app is open..) no ringing or pop ups even though I have permissions/such turned on. but at least I dont have permanent # that wont go away like I did with the actual messenger app.


Was good, becoming tiring. Acts very strangely sometimes, can't view pictures as it jumps back to first in a list of many. Contacted the developer to tell them and got ignored. May look for something better.


Pretty awesome, so far!!😃. It's nit letting me upload any photos! Was working as of 3/20/19. Not able to upload ANYTHING. Please fix, thank you, Toni..


Currently there is serious problem affecting this super facebook app. It original home page frequently crashes and turns to " no data " free mode page. May be this problem is local here. Thanks.


----- events not working at all ----- annoying jumps to random pages with even a slight sideways touch on screen - a LOT of ads (probably nt to do with app but fb tho) +++++ no "stories" as in fb: the one and only reason to use this app instead of fb app


love the features, super smooth scrolling. but unistall for one simple thing, when I share a post i see, it wont take me back to the original section i was looking at, it refreshes my feed, the one thing i truly hated in the original facebook app.


I like the less information shoved at you. I do wish it would restart or refresh more so I can view new posts. Other than that it's good.


Dunno what you did but the latest update destroyed it. Slow, unresponsive now. Edit: Much better now, deserving of the 5 stars.


Randomly freezes. Can't view my own timeline. Disappointing, since it's a beautiful Facebook wrapper, but it's unusable.


Me encanta, uso facebook a mi manera y no a la manera que los desarrolladores quieren, quite las inutiles historias, veo noticias recientes al abrir la app, quite la seccion de editar estado, una maravilla, ojala pronto oo hagan correr a la misma velocidad que la app de facebook ya que tienen un ligero retraso, que en solo ese pequeño punto lo hace inferior a la app original, en todo lo demas la supera y con creces
