Using the launched email address of the social giant users around the world will be able to report their depressing experiences on Facebook at once.
Facebook has asked its 900 million users to send relevant details of suspected attack on firstname.lastname@example.org, according to the Telegraph. After receiving reports from its users Facebook will “investigate and request for browser blacklisting and site take downs where appropriate.”
On its security blog Facebook describes the new system saying: “We will then work with our eCrime team to ensure we hold bad actors accountable. Additionally, in some cases, we’ll be able to identify victims, and secure their accounts.”
“This new reporting channel will compliment internal systems we have in place to detect phishing sites attempting to steal Facebook user login information.”
“The internal systems notify our team, so we can gather information on the attack, take the phishing sites offline, and notify users. Affected users will be prompted to change their password and provided education to better protect themselves in the future,” ensured the most celebrated social networking site.
