Swipe for Facebook

  • v9.0.1

The Best Facebook Alternative with Messenger Built-in. Fast. Lite. Customizable.

Swipe for Facebook latest version

😉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.


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.


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.


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.


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!


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).


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


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.

What others say about the Swipe for Facebook app

Of all the wrapper apps for Facebook this is probably the most polished and feature rich, there are some good ones out there but this doesn't feel like a chore to use at all, the developer has really paid a lot of attention to detail both aesthetically and performance wise, sometimes sharing to Facebook from another app doesn't work reliably but this seems to be true for all wrapper apps unfortunately, still a great experience though, better than the original app!
Unfortunately the latest update has caused me to change my review. On both my Nexus 5X and my wife's Edge 7 the app force loads all videos posted anywhere without clicking on them and gets stuck in a loop when trying to back out so you have to force close the application. Until this gets fixed my review stands.
I especially like giving Facebook a dark theme so it doesn't look like I'm on Facebook. It looks like I'm on some sort of cool website that happens to have lots of baby pictures.
The best alternative Facebook app by a mile looks as good if not better \n' + "than real app its smoother too and doesn't kill my battery
