Kaspersky has released a web app called Friend Or Foe, that lets users evaluate and review how valuable their Facebook friends are and show them what others think of them.
Kaspersky Friend Or Foe Facebook app
The Kaspersky Friend Or Foe free Facebook app lets users identify, spammers, genuine fans, re-posters, commenters, threats to social network users and also tell you how to keep personal information secure. FriendOrFoe displays how many videos and photos a user publishes, the number of likes received and lots of other stats that may be of interest to Facebook devotees
The largest social network in the world is bound to attract the attention of cybercriminals. More often than not, they are on the hunt for personal data and login credentials which they can then use to access such things as your mobile banking account. It comes as no surprise then that Facebook is the most popular target for phishers: in the first quarter of 2014, 79.5% of all social media phishing attacks targeted this particular service.
It offers some specifi advice on the following subjects:
- It will display a list of all the people or things you’ve searched for on Facebook, and erase it.
- It allows you to check if anyone has checked you in without your permission
- It will review all the apps you are logged in to and the app permissions you may have given
- It prompts you to check any photos you’ve been tagged in.
You will be required to login with your Facebook login. By doing so, you will end up having to give access to your Friend lists, Public profile, News Feed, Birthday, Hometown, Friends birthdays, Likes and so on. Once you give access, you will have to wait for an hour so, during which time the app will process your data. Once does, it will lay it all out nicely for you.
Friend Or Foe is available in English, Russian, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Mexican Spanish, Arabic, and Japanese languages only.
Update June 16: the FriendOrFoe web app page is no longer available at Kapersky nor could we find any other download site offering this app. You may check out http://fof.kaspersky.com/ from your computer some time later to see if you get lucky.
