Free Social Network Protection Application Available In Beta
BitDefender has announced the Beta launch of safego, a free application that uses sophisticated BitDefender scanning technology to simplify and improve social networking safety. Designed to be used on various social networks, BitDefender safego is now being Beta tested on Facebook.

Through a simple interface, the safego application checks the user's privacy levels and identifies personal information that is visible to strangers. It also scans the user's wall, message inbox and comments for malicious links and shared content that could be compromised such as videos and pictures.

"It's clear that a large number of people do not understand how much personal information they're sharing with the world but the BitDefender safego app makes it easy to identify and make necessary changes," said Catalin Cosoi, Head of the BitDefender Online Threats Lab. "We've seen an increasing number of attacks targeted at the 500 million Facebook users, but using our superior malware detection the BitDefender safego app helps protect users from malicious links and other threats that spread through messages, wall posts and videos."

By installing the free BitDefender safego app for social networks, users will receive:

• Privacy protection - users are warned when they should modify their Facebook privacy settings so personal information is not exposed
• Automatic scanning - users simply press the 'scan now' button to get a snapshot of their Facebook security status
• 24/7 protection - Facebook accounts are protected even when users are not logged in
• Protection for friends - users will have the ability to warn their friends about infected links in their Facebook accounts.
