Disable Facebook App Authorization

​You can set up a Woobox campaign to avoid the Facebook App Authorization if you set it up without using any of the following settings.

  • One entry per Facebook user
  • One entry per Facebook user per day
  • One vote per Facebook user

If you want to use any of those, it’s going to require that users “Authorize” the app before they can enter the contest.  You can still use (in place of the above settings) the “one entry per email address [per day]” and/or award bonus entries per “user that clicks and enters from entrant’s shared link.”

To change entry or voting restriction methods, go to the Settings tab and click Allow Voting and/or Participant Limits.

For previous version campaigns like Media Giveaway, clicking on the “Facebook Auth Dialogue” button from the Overview page will take you to the Edit screen where you can adjust these settings.

Since Facebook has changed the way they share information, there are now just 2 settings (both on the Edit screen) that will enable or disable Facebook Auth: Entry restriction and Voting restriction.

If “Facebook user” or “Facebook user per day” are selected in these settings, the user will be required to be logged into Facebook and authorize the app they are interacting with.
