Facebook introduces the ‘Safeguard’ feature on messenger

Facebook introduced the ‘Safeguard’ feature in the messenger app to control fake friends and flashy messages. This feature has already been introduced in many user accounts. Users of Android and iOS platforms will get this facility in Messenger in phases.

Messenger is designed to prevent sending unwanted or malicious links, Facebook said. Accounts opened on Facebook will also be scanned so that action can be taken by identifying the activities of dangerous users, automatic machine learning, suspicious activities, and other harmful activities.

If something unusual is caught automatically, the user will be alerted with notice through a pop-up in the Messenger app. This will make it easier to avoid suspicious users.
