AWARENESS: STOP YOUR FRIENDS INFECTING YOU ON FACEBOOK

Social-media malware is becoming increasingly common on Facebook. It spreads through infected links that people post on their friends’ walls and in their own status updates. This, in turn, infects other people’s News Feeds.

HOW TO AVOID INFECTION?

1.      ESET SOCIAL MEDIA SCANNER.

ESET Social Media Scanner protects you even when you are not logged in. If an infection is found, you are notified by email and can take immediate action. The ESET Social Media Scanner also checks your friends’ walls for potentially dangerous links. If malicious content is found, you will receive a notification. To read FAQ on the ESET social media scanner visit their ESET Social Media Scanner FAQ



2.      BITDEFENDER SAFEGO.
Bitdefender Safego is a free app for your Facebook account. It protects you, and your friends from malware threats that attempt to exploit the trust you’ve built with them. Safego keeps you safe from all sorts of e-trouble, including scams, spam, malware, and private data exposure. Safe social network privacy score protection against phishing attacks.

2.      NORTON SAFE WEB FOR FACEBOOK.
Norton Safe Web will scan your Facebook news feed and warn you of unsafe links and sites. Don’t fall victim to a LIKE-jacking scam, or worse a hacker’s takeover of your profile. Know whether a link is safe before you click or share it with your friends.

4. USE STRONG PASSWORD.
If someone you know is sending spam from their email or social-networking account, they’ve probably been hacked. In most cases, this will be because they’ve chosen a weak password or used the same one for lots of sites.

NOTE: you can use either of the above to keep yourself safe on Facebook.
