BitDefender launches Twitter protection

A beta version of a free tool to scan social network users’ accounts and detect spam, scams and other e-threats, has been launched by BitDefender, Safego for Twitter.

Initially launched for Facebook users, Bitdefender Safego checks unknown Twitter profiles before you follow them, checks the accounts you are currently following and scans messages sent to you for spam, suspicious links or hijacking attempts.

Safego for Twitter also features a scan on-demand function for checking whether the account you wish to follow is safe, before you actually follow them. Potential threats lurking behind shortened URL links are also automatically scanned, and the use profile categorised according to the threat level.
