How to protect yourself from malvertising on Facebook

Not all photos on Facebook are safe or appropriate. Some photos may contain malicious code or links that can infect your device or compromise your privacy. These photos are called malvertising, and they are designed to trick you into clicking on them or downloading something harmful. Malvertising can also spread through your contacts and appear on your own Facebook page.

To avoid falling victim to malvertising, you should always have reliable antivirus software installed on your device. Should you accidentally click any of these scam photos or links, you want to be protected by antivirus software. Having good antivirus software actively running on your devices will alert you of any malware in your system, warn you against clicking on any malicious links in malvertising, and ultimately protect you from being hacked.
