Who hasn’t got a FaceBook account these days? Besides being a useful social networking utility, it could be a real time waster if you get addicted. Due to this very reason, most workplaces and educational institutes prevent users from accessing this service. faceoffIM is a useful little software that’s ideal for FaceBook addicts who want to access the service from office or school without getting caught. It’s basically a standalone FaceBook chat client with limited FB browsing features. The software comes complete with a ‘panic button’ as well as an interface that resembles internal systems at most workplaces.

    At school, I use a Tor browser[anyone will do] to surf the web. I just put it on a USB drive and stick in the computer.
    I can bypass all the school's site filters.
