More than 30 million people have visited the AV Marketplace since its launch almost six months ago. Since then, we have worked to make your Facebook experience even more secure. We implemented new phishing protections, and announced the launch of firstname.lastname@example.org, an email address available to the public to report phishing attempts against Facebook. In July we launched new malware checkpoints and provided users with the ability to self-enroll in these checkpoints to help keep their devices malware free.
Today, we are announcing the expansion of our AV Marketplace to include seven new partners to our growing coalition of security companies. Starting now, Facebook users will be able to download software from – avast!, AVG, Avira, Kaspersky, Panda, Total Defense, and Webroot. Not only do we have new partners but also many of our existing partners – Microsoft, McAfee, Norton, TrendMicro, and Sophos – will begin offering anti-virus software for your mobile devices. You can visit the AV Marketplace now to download free anti-virus software for PC, Mac and Mobile.
