Facebook users can now have a more safe and secure online experience thanks to its partnership with Trend Micro.
Our free security solution, Trend Micro HouseCall, will be provided to all Facebook users to scan and remove malware from infected accounts.
The removal of malware enables users to continue socializing online in a more secure and private environment without being infected from other accounts or unintentionally sharing malicious content. This partnership enables Facebook users to confidently engage with one another knowing their devices are protected and their online information is secured.
Potentially infected users are identified and notified by Facebook with the option to download the free version of HouseCall, which will check for and remove malware. HouseCall will begin its scan on affected accounts of users who choose to download the scanner, and users will be able to continue using Facebook while the scan takes place. Once the scan is complete, a message will alert users if the cleanup was successful or unsuccessful.
With trillions of clicks occurring every day on Facebook, the social platform is a tempting target for spammers and criminals. HouseCall will mitigate these infectious threats as it detects and alerts users to malicious activity that could compromise user security and privacy.
