As you can expect every year, ESET again released the latest version of its software. ESET Smart Security 6 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 6 for home users are here, packed with new features and even better antimalware functionality. The new generation provides even greater detection of infiltrations, improved cleaning and faster scanning due to the updated engine. Furthermore, the ESET Social Media Scanner App also comes standard with ESET Smart Security 6 as well as ESET NOD32 Antivirus 6, protecting against Facebook threats.
ESET Social Media Scanner protects social media users from malicious content, including their profile, wall, newsfeed and private messages, even when the user is not logged in. If an infection is found, a notification arrives by email, so that immediate action can be taken. The app also helps the user’s friends stay a safe distance from malicious content, checking their walls for potentially dangerous links.
The Anti-Theft feature helps locate missing notebooks and makes it possible to monitor activity on lost or stolen devices, while the introduction of a dedicated Anti-Phishing module offers complex protection against digital identity theft.
