Facebook Doing Checking Links to Other Sites to Security from Viruses, Malware & Phishing

Facebook users are now promised comfort in terms of security, and new features that are planned will provide services to the user should check the security for each link that is clicked by the user. This is done to reduce the activity of malware, phishing, trojans and other security problems.

This feature will detect the presence of danger when there is suspicious activity. Furthermore, the user will see a warning page, whether to continue to the intended page or return to the previous page.

Previously, this facility is already owned by Google. However, Facebook claims that the service is better than a feature that is owned by Google, because they can do it in realtime.

Unfortunately there are still weaknesses in link checking the site because they work with McAfee’s SiteAdvisor service primarily to rate lik it.
