The furor over Facebook’s lax attitude towards privacy died down as quickly as it began. But BitDefender feels it still isn’t too late to cash in on privacy and security concerns voiced by many Facebook users. The Internet security firm has released a
beta version of its new safego Facebook app
that performs a security and privacy audit of Facebook accounts for their owners.
"It's clear that a large number of people don't understand how much personal information they're sharing with the world. The BitDefender safego app makes it easy to identify what's shared and make the necessary changes," said Catalin Cosoi, head of the BitDefender Online Threats Lab. "Additionally, we've seen an increasing number of attacks targeted at the 500 million users of Facebook."
