Security applications and Facebook tend to mix together like oil and water.
Folks generally want to share when they’re online — and not to worry about security. Many people don’t use security tools if they prove to be too cumbersome.
Therefore, when attempting to develop a security application for Facebook… it had better not be boring. And that brings us to our new beta: F-Secure ShareSafe. The development team behind ShareSafe aims to build an entertaining Facebook app, with security benefits tagging along for the ride.
Here’s a non-security use example: discovering popular links shared by the community.
(You’ll also earn badges by sharing via ShareSafe.)
Here’s what your links will look like:
Besides discovering new links, earning badges, and having the comfort of mind that your own links have been vetted by F-Secure, beta users will also earn points that can be redeemed for stuff such as F-Secure Internet Security licenses.
Sounds pretty good, right? — Right.
