“Our internal research shows that Facebook users are three times more likely to stumble across suspicious links than Twitter users," said Damir Seferovic, ESET consumer product manager. “This is mainly due to the platform’s large user base, credit card information it stores, and amount of shared, private data it often contains. By utilizing ESET Social Media Scanner, consumers can use Facebook and Twitter with confidence, knowing that they are protected against attacks and their personal information is safe.”

The new version of ESET Social Media Scanner includes improved detection of harmful links and an intuitive design, making it easy to use across mobile platforms. The automatic scan function runs regularly in the background and provides users with real-time protection against malicious content.
