Online scanner now protects your Facebook from malware
Now you can protect your Facebook account from malware. ESET Online Scanner will help users to scan and identify malware that was posted to their Facebook account after logging onto an infected computer and safely remove it.
ESET Online Scanner, which went live on December 4, is available for all Facebook users without fee.
ESET Online Scanner for Facebook was designed to detect and clean infected computers of Facebook users. When a Facebook user logs into their account, Facebook checks for signs of any suspicious behaviour, such as sending spam messages or infected links to friends. If this kind of activity is detected, Facebook displays a message offering the user a chance to use ESET Online Scanner for Facebook.
If users download and run the scanner, they can continue to use Facebook and other services on their device without any loss of performance. When the scan is complete, they will receive a notification through Facebook and also be able to review the results of the scan. Cleanup begins after the scan is complete if any malware is discovered. In the end, the user is provided with the result and link to http://www.eset.com.
“Our goal is to offer our users the right technology to improve their experience of our services and better protect their devices. ESET Online Scanner for Facebook will significantly decrease the number of malicious links from among the trillions of clicks that take place every day on Facebook,” said Chetan Gowda at Facebook.
“ESET is pleased to offer its services to Facebook users all over the world. Signature low system footprint and ESET’s top rated detection technology used in ESET Online Scanner guarantee effective and easy detection for free,” said Ignacio Sbampato, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at ESET.
