How legitimate are the emails from Facebook? Not, sure. With its recent addition of anti-harassment tools in Messenger, Facebook is now testing a way to validate the mails and messages send by spammers who portray to be from the social media platform and encourage the users to click on the link which takes them to a fraud site.
What Facebook has to say to their new development?
Product Manager, Scott Dickens has discussed about their new development in which Facebook will send a new list of already sent mails to the user so that they can verify those with their previously sent ones. He stated “Facebookmail.com is a common domain that Facebook uses to send notifications when we detect an attempt to log in to your account or change a password. If you’re unsure if an email you received was from Facebook, you can check its legitimacy by visiting facebook.com/settings to view a list of security-related emails that have been recently sent.”
How to avail this new feature?
This feature will be present in the Facebook settings. The user needs to tap on ‘Security and Login’. He needs to scroll to the bottom and view the ‘See recent emails from Facebook’. The option will display security alerts along with the notifications sent by Facebook like mentions, events etc.
How will this help users?
This latest feature from Facebook will alert the users about using any uncertain links in order to protect their privacy. This toll would help the users in reducing the spam activities that is on a hike these days.
