Facebook Virus

Don't be a victim.Think before you click.

Lately there are  new viruses  that is all over facebook. I am not one of the victim yet,as far as I know but some of my friends were. A  pornographic or some inappropriate content were  posted on  their walls/news feed without them knowing it.

So if  you are one of those victims ,try this simple step to clean up your facebook account.

Check out your URL at  the top box of  your  screen.If you  see" http" instead of "https",you do not have a Secure Setting .To fix the problem, just follow the simple instruction to clean up your Facebook Account.

1. Go to Account Setting
2. Click Security on the left corner.
3.Click Edit next to the Secure Browsing.
4.Check the box.
5. Click Save.

Hope it helps.

  2. I have been evading this one for sometime. And some of them can be easily identified. Posts about nude photos, celebrity scandals are some of the few.

    Hackers have found another way to mess up with our accounts through FB's.

  6. sa face book kasi maraming maloloko at madedenggoy...so isama nyo na rin pag-ingatan mga scam artists na nangangako... a year ago 2 kasama ko nakuhanan ng $2000 dlrs, at yong isa $4000 dls... at sa personal experience ko rin hwag maniwala don sa ads na "Need translator" at ibang online home jobs... pag pasok mo doon uulanin ka ng more pangako at kunwari free membership and kaunting barya as they entice you to pay more to get in, and buy more of their products. in one day your e-mail is spammed w/ hundreds or thousands of unsolicited email marketing e-mails.

  9. I try to set it on security browsing but it became hassle for me, I always do and post on it and every turn around theres the security browsing asking for approval so for me it wont work maybe for others is ok

  10. Because of this virus, fb is no longer a family-friendly site. Huh. Sana masulosyunan ito agad kasi we can all be a victim. Kawawa naman ung mga hindi naka https

  15. Dami na talagang virus now sa facebook. There's also some blogs na lumalabas na iba-block daw ang fb sa pinas because of pornographic images na sa pinas daw galing. But I think walang katotohanan yon.
