Facebook's Related Links: A Security Feature?
You won't expect someone who gives cybersecurity awareness talks regularly to fall into simple clickbait scams do you? Well … I did. I clicked on a link shared by my friend on Facebook titled “[Shocking VIDEO] A giant Anaconda swallows Up a N**** Zookeeper in South Africa”.
Thankfully my antivirus blocked the website. Scrolling down my Facebook newsfeed, I observed something quite interesting. The related links to that particular link pointed it out that it’s a Facebook scam. Not bad, Facebook.
Cybercrooks are always out there to get you by leveraging on your trust.
Think twice and verify the link before you click on it.
Install antivirus on your computer, and keep it updated.
