Facebook settings are often confusing and are constantly changing, so we created PrivacyFix to help manage your settings in an easy to understand format.
Now, thanks to our latest privacy tool you can help your family and friends lock down their settings on Facebook with AVG PrivacyFix Family.
Getting started with PrivacyFix
The first step to helping your family with their Facebook settings is to make sure you understand them and have adjusted your own settings. Begin by logging in to PrivacyFix Family we will ask you to run PrivacyFix on your own account.
Once you have run PrivacyFix yourself, you will see a Facebook Privacy Level. This number represents how private your Facebook settings are from 0 to 100.
Inviting Family Members
After running PrivacyFix yourself it’s time to make sure that the people you care the most about are also protected online. We will start by showing you any family members you have listed on Facebook. All you need to do is click on their picture and type in a message to send to them over Facebook.
If there are people you want to help protect online outside of family members, just click on “Invite New” and type their name or email address.
- If you type their name we will show you people from your Facebook matching that name to select from. We will then send them a message over Facebook.
- If you type in an email we will create an email for you to send to them and they can accept that way. No need for you to be friends on Facebook to help monitor each other’s privacy.
View their Facebook Settings
As soon as somebody that you have invited has accepted or rejected your invitation we will notify you. We will send a follow-up email as well when the user has run PrivacyFix and has a score available to be seen.
After the invitation has been accepted you can log back in and see their profile picture in your family with a score on it. By clicking on their profile you can see a more detailed view of what Facebook settings are not private for this person.
