    Today, Trend Micro is proud to announce that we are taking part in Facebook’s new security initiative to help protect its more than 900 million users against the wide variety of threats that target users of the world’s most popular social network.

    As part of this initiative:

    • Facebook and Trend Micro will work together to leverage the latter’s threat intelligence capabilities, particularly its knowledge of malicious websites, to protect Facebook users. This means even non-Trend Micro users of Facebook will also be protected by the enhanced capabilities of the Trend Micro™ Smart Protection Network™ against threats commonly found on the social network like survey scams.
    • Users in the US, Canada, Britain, and Australia can download a free copy of either Titanium™ Security Essentials (for Windows users) or Smart Surfing (for Mac users). This free copy will be valid for six months, and all users have to do is like the Fearless Web page and visit the new AV Marketplace section to download a copy.

    Clutter is something that appears harmless in small amounts, but can be a hassle if it accumulates. That’s why it’s a good idea to devote time into clearing it out – not just from our houses and living spaces, but also from our digital lives. Doing so not only improves our overall image, it also eliminates the possibility of any embarrassing moments when company comes over to visit (or in our digital life’s case, when someone visits our profile). Just like how a clean house is always better to live in than a messy one, a digital life that’s free from electronic rubble not only benefits us, but also those around us.

    To help you on your way, we’ve put together an e-guide containing handy tips in taking out the clutter of your digital life. Specifically this guide focuses on the three main aspects of your digital life: your desktop (or laptop, whichever applies), your mobile device, and your digital reputation.

    We also included some pointers that you can take to heart not just with those three aspects, but also in whatever you do. These can be helpful not only to keep what’s important at bay from cybercriminals, but also to ensure that those crucial data never gets lost.

    You can check out our guide in full. For additional tips, you can also check out the relevant article posted at Fearless Web here.
