How to Scan Your Facebook Links for Malware

Meru Governor, Peter Munya

Over the last few days, many links have been spreading on Facebook which when you click hijack your account and start sending your friends all manner of links. Norton seems to have found a way of improving on the security of Facebook users. The trick is very easy and just works like what we used to have where all Yahoo downloads were scanned before you downloaded them onto your local drive.

  1. First you need to open Norton Safe Web for Facebook in your Web browser. You need to have logged into your Facebook account.



2. Facebook will want you to authorize permission for the Norton app to scan your account.







3. You might be required to authorise further permissions. Confirm and continue. You should enable auto-scan


This is one feature which can really help most of your friends so share it around.
