Set max privacy
When you pair Webcaster X2 with your Facebook account, you tell Facebook who can see posts made by Webcaster X2. This value is effectively a ceiling on the privacy level Webcaster X2 can set for your live streams.
When you first authorize Webcaster X2 to your Facebook account, you see a screen like this, asking you who can see Webcaster X2's posts.
If you leave this set to Friends, Webcaster X2 can only post to your account with a privacy of Friends or Only Me.
