Now, a new application has been created that can help users clean vulgar or embarrassing pages from their Facebook profile.

A group of Kent State University students have put together the 'Facewash' app that will search through a user's Facebook activity and content for items that the user may want to hide or delete.

That could include status updates, photo captions, and comments users left or received as well as pages and links that were liked, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Daniel Gur, 22, created the app over with two friends and fellow computer science majors from his school, Camden Fullmer, 21, and David Steinberg, 24.

According to the report, to use Facewash, users first need to go to its website,, click "Get Started" and log into their Facebook account if they aren't logged in already.

The user will be prompted to click "Go to App" and then give the app permission to access the user's contents.

Search for a term and the app starts looking through all of the user's profile content, the report said.

If Facewash finds a match, it'll show it to the user and link the posts so the user can easily delete a status or remove a picture, it added. (ANI)
