Bitdefender Safego is a Bitdefender application suite designed to protect online social community members from different types of e-threats and from spam. The application is currently available for Twitter users.
On Twitter, Bitdefender Safego will automatically scan users’ timeline, private messages, the accounts of users’ followers and of the persons users follow in order to identify scams, malware, phishing attempts, spam bots and any other suspicious behavior. Depending on the settings chosen by the users, automatic warning messages may be issued as direct messages, mentions or as e-mail messages. In order to improve the application’s warning system, some of the application settings will be enabled by default, but they can be disabled at users’ will, from the application dashboard.
Bitdefender Safego does not automatically modify or delete any file either on users’ systems or in their Twitter account. It is your decision to click the Unfollow button in order to stop seeing the tweets and receiving the direct messages of a suspicious Twitter user.
Bitdefender Safego uses the Bitdefender antimalware and antiphishing engines to scan URLs in the cloud. This scanning process is based on a comprehensive blacklist of untrusted web sites and on heuristic detection.
Bitdefender Safego will automatically extract and examine the potentially harmful content posted on users’ timelines. Suspicious URLs will be automatically extracted from the tweets and scanned with the Bitdefender antimalware and antiphishing engines.
By accepting these terms and conditions Bitdefender Safego users agree that the content published (either by them or by their Twitter followers or by persons these users follow) in their Twitter Timelines and in the Timelines of all the other Twitter users they interact with will be sent to Bitdefender for analysis in order for Safego users to stay protected from scams, spam and from malicious applications. For more information, please access the Bitdefender Safego Privacy Terms.
On Twitter, the Bitdefender Safego application can only be installed subsequent to obtaining users’ consent as to the application’s right to access the content published in his/her Timeline, as well as in the Timelines of the user’s followers or of other persons the user interacts with. Once installed on the user’s Twitter account, Bitdefender Safego does not require any user input.The uninstall procedure, just as any other application designed for Twitter users, is the following: the user should go to the Settings section of their Twitter account, access the Application tab and click the Revoke Access button next to the respective application’s name.
Content Generated by the Application
On Twitter, whenever it detects a tweet that is considered to be spam or part of a phishing/malware dissemination scheme or a user with suspicious behavior (i.e. likely to be a spam bot) Bitdefender Safego will list the user having posted the suspicious content in the Suspicious Users list. If the user enables the Publish Weekly Summary option, Bitdefender Safego will also periodically post in the user’s Timeline various statistics concerning the security status of that account and the application’s activity. The application’s page (dashboard) may also display various Bitdefender advertisements or direct links to Bitdefender quizzes or questionnaires. If you do not agree to the terms of this agreement, do not use Bitdefender Safego.
