Facebook's controversial app 'Bang with friends' launched in January this year has no privacy settings to keep the user's interests, activities and likes 'private'.

'Bang with friends' is an app with which one can find out who all from their friend list is open for 'banging' and once the other person responds to the selection made by one user, the site sends a confirmation and the rest of the decision lies with the sender.

Branded ' evilest app ever', this app's usage, presumed to be private, is not private after all. If a user has signed up for the app, another user can track their history of likes, interests and activities making it preposterous for some users.

There is no privacy setting to keep the user's activities hidden from the other users, which may include people from the friend list, who have signed up for this app.

With improvised privacy settings, the user can customize what is posted, who tags them, which pictures appear on timeline, etc. In case of ' Bang with friends' no detail is left locked or visible to just the user, reported CBS News.

In order to increase its revenue, Facebook overlooked the privacy settings for this app. This means, those who have been cheating on their partners have online history that can be traced by others.

One can easily trace which of their friend is using this app and what all 'likes' and 'interests' have been. Private affairs are not so private after all!
