Is It Possible To Reclaim Privacy On Facebook?

As anyone who uses the site knows, it can be really, really hard to secure your Facebook profile, and constant changes make it a constant challenge. Reclaim Privacy is a new tool that claims it helps you scan and protect your profile, without "seeing" or preying on the data — your private information. I can't vouch for it, or recommend it any official way, so if you want, check it out for yourself. I will say I tried it, and it worked very quickly, pinpointed exactly where I had gaps in my settings, and helped me fix them. However, I have no way of knowing right now if it stole all my information, distributed it far and wide, and somehow promised my unborn children to the pimps on K Street (interpret that how you will).

Have you tried it? Did it work for you, and does it feel legit?
