Secure.me, a watchdog for Facebook application security, has been acquired by AVAST Software, a popular antivirus software company. Secure.me has connected with 90 million Facebook profiles around the world, alerting users to how much information their apps are taking.
The Facebook Antivirus Marketplace is now available in seven new languages: French, Italian, German, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, and Portuguese.
Facebook introduced its Antivirus Marketplace in April, featuring free downloads and six-month licenses of security software from Microsoft, McAfee, Trend Micro, Sophos, and Symantec. Tuesday, nearly six months after launch, the social network announced seven new partners.
