Facebook redesigns Safety Centre for better security

Mr Alex Stamos the Chief Security Officer at Facebook, has say that the company has redesigned its Safety Centre to enable people stay safe online. Disclosing this to newsmen in Lagos on Friday, said the approach became necessary to making the internet more secure for everyone.

He said the company performed automated checks to help to detect suspicious logins so as to protect people’s accounts and that the company also shipped its own cryptography with their mobile app to make people more secure on those devices.

The statement reads;
“Nigeria officially recognised National Cyber Security Awareness Month in October, underscoring the need to educate the public about how to protect themselves.
“This focus on awareness is at the heart of Facebook’s newly redesigned Safety Centre, an engaging resource to help people to get the information they need about controlling their information and staying safe.
“People come to Facebook to share important and personal moments in their lives. That is why we build our services and tools to help them to remain in control and protect their accounts.
“We always have to consider the situations in which our technology will be used so that we can offer people the best security and safety for what they need,’’ it said.
“The new Safety Centre walks people through Facebook-tools to control your experience as well as numerous tips and resources for safe and secure sharing.
“The Safety Centre is available in over 50 languages; works well on mobile devices and includes step-by-step videos on a variety of popular safety topics.’’
“This update also brings the Bullying Prevention Hub to everyone on Facebook. The Hub is a resource for teens, parents and educators seeking guidance on how to prevent and address bullying.
“Developed with the Yale Centre for Emotional Intelligence in 2013, Facebook now works with nearly 60 partners around the world to make the Bullying Prevention Hub more widely available.
“For Facebook, making the world more open and connected also means keeping people and their information safe. Check out the new Facebook Safety Centre today,’’
