Free Mobile Privacy Scanner Protects
Today, more than 680 million active Facebook users access the social networking site from their mobile devices. With at least one million malicious and high risk Android applications expected by the end of this year, if you're using Facebook, you have good reasons to be concerned.
Android threats have grown exponentially over the past 12-18 months and Trend Micro researchers have uncovered over 350,000 unique Android malware available in app stores and websites around the globe, including the Google Play Store. And because so many people access Facebook via mobile device, this avalanche of malicious apps can result in identity theft, ransomware exploits, targeted phishing attempts, and other dangerous and costly consequences.
To help prevent malicious activities and keep its users safe from these threats, Facebook recently updated its security settings. But according to Consumer Reports, more than one-third of Facebook users either don't know about the privacy settings, never change them, or share everything with everyonewhich makes them much more likely to have their privacy violated.
Trend Micro offers a free Privacy Scanner for Facebook to fill the security gap for Android users. Our Privacy Scanner app provides an extra layer of protection for your personal information while you're on Facebook. The Privacy Scanner works by analyzing your Facebook settings and recommending changes to your profile that will better protect your personal information. With a single click, you can easily monitor your Facebook page settings and control access to private information.
If you want protection beyond just managing Facebook privacy settings, Trend Micro™ Mobile Security is for you. The latest version of Mobile Security takes privacy protection to the next level by incorporating industry-leading antivirus protection, data-theft detection that identifies apps that actually collect personal information, antiphishing protection, Privacy Scanner for Facebook, as well as Trend Micro™ Mobile Backup and Restore.
