Protect your Facebook Account

If you have a Facebook Account and you are serious thinking about how to protect your private Data there against Spam, Scam and Fraud You should use the new Bitdefender safego App.

Bitdefender is the first AntiVirus Company I know who is taking the step forward and protecting Facebook Accounts. I hope that in the future such Applications will be available for any Social Network.

BitDefender safego is a free tool that has a nose (i.e. scanning capability) for nasty e-tricks, plus an eye for personal information exposure. 

BitDefender safego uses the BitDefender antimalware and antiphishing engines to scan URLs in the cloud. Posts and comments are scanned heuristically, in the cloud.

BitDefender safego includes a privacy protection feature which warns you in case your public profile contains private data that can be accessed freely by persons who are not among your Facebook contacts. A list of categories of such vulnerable private information is displayed on the BitDefender safego application’s interface so that you can adjust your profile’s privacy settings accordingly.

Newest Facebook Fraud.

Here are a few samples of Facebook Spam and Fraud. The First attempt was made to my Facebook Account, while the other was reported to me by a friend, I replaced his name with XXXXX to protect his privacy.

If email is his only Way of Communication, how can he send this Message through Facebook? Writing in capital Letters is also against the Netiquette and offending. I informed Facebook about this Scamer Account. I had to cut the End of the Message since it was to long for posting here.
