I am sure that you happened to visit a link sent by someone to enter the computer’s antivirus alert. What would have happened but if you had not installed an antivirus?
Facebook thought about it and made an important step to protect users. The company works with Microsoft, McAfee, Sophos, Symantec and Trend Micro to create a database of dangerous links. Any links posted on Facebook will be filtered for user safety.
Moreover, Facebook now offers a shop just for antivirus. All users connect to the Internet should have one installed, but for those not there now AV Marketplace. No, Facebook does not sell antivirus programs. The site offers social networking but can download an antivirus that is free for a period of six months. If the user is satisfied, you can purchase from the manufacturer.
Facebook offered by Norton antivirus Virus 2012, Trend Micro Titanium Security Essentials, Microsoft Security Essentials and McAfee Internet Security 2012. For Mac owners there are two antivirus applications from Trend Micro and Sophos. We recommend all users accessing Facebook or not to install an antivirus even free.
