Trend Micro Advises Users:
“Strengthen Social Network Privacy Settings in the
Post Now, Think Later Era”
Manila, Philippines – 2 October 2013 – In an age where more and more people post various details of their personal lives online, Trend Micro warns, “everything we do online leaves behind a digital footprint that can lead cyber criminals back.”
In a recent survey commissioned by Trend Micro, the company found out that almost 70% of the survey respondents are very active on social networking sites, accessing social networks at least once a day. These respondents post profile updates every day citing entertainment, current activities and shopping deals as their most shared information on Twitter and Google+. Almost 24% of these respondents actually traded personal information in exchange for discounts, coupons and to have more friends on their profiles and 37% would also give personal information to be able to join lucky draws online.
“Filipinos are highly switched on. However, they should be mindful about strengthening social network privacy settings. Trend Micro urges Filipinos not to be complacent online. Personal information is valuable to cyber criminals, for their own gain, create false identities for criminal use or even leverage your network to target your friends and family,” said Terrence Tang, Senior Director of Consumer Business, APAC Center Sales and Marketing, Trend Micro.

Privacy Scanner identifies privacy loopholes in social network profiles
One of the most important features to be improved in the Trend Micro Titanium 2014 is the Privacy Scanner. Equipped with Web-threat protection that identifies and blocks dangerous links in websites, social networks, emails and instant messaging, Trend Micro Titanium 2014 can detect spam emails containing phishing scams that can trick users into revealing private personal information.
Trend Micro’s robust Privacy Scanner now dramatically simplifies privacy settings on Twitter, Google+, and Facebook – for both Mac and PC. Facebook settings can also now be managed on-the-go via an Android app. It also gives users control over which apps can access biographical data, and who can tag and see photos.
In this ‘post first, think later’ era on social networks, the Privacy Scanner helps ensure that consumers share information only among those they know.
According to the August 2013 AV Comparatives report, Trend Micro Titanium offers the broadest combination of privacy and Web threat protections for Facebook, Google+, and Twitter across PCs and Macs among 31 security products reviewed (Social Network Protection Review, August 2013, AV Comparatives).
Vulnerability Quotient: How vulnerable are you online?
Trend Micro urges for consumers to seek discretion when posting on social networks and diligence in maintaining strong passwords, as ways to safeguard their personal lives.
Trend Micro has launched the Trend Micro Vulnerability Quotient, available at http://bit.ly/TMPHpress– an app on Facebook that helps consumers determine how vulnerable they are online. Through a series of questions measuring consumers’ behavior on social networks and password management, amongst other security issues, a consumer finds out what their Vulnerability Quotient is and just how vulnerable they are to falling victim to cyber threats. An added function allows them to track how they fare among the rest of the population.
