Facebook is like our personal diary where we have stored several memories of our life. Its posts and messages remind us about our past days. Not only the public posts but also several secrets are saved in it. But what if someone leaks all those information or uses it for a negative purpose.

You might be hearing about hacking day by day. Scammers misused your profile which may harm you and leak your privacy. By keeping all these things in mind, Facebook Messenger introduces new features to protect its users from scammers.

Jay Sullivan, Product Safety Manager at Facebook said, “Too often people chat with someone online they think they know when they are scammers”. Normally we cannot be able to identify such profiles and its consequences can be difficult and expensive.
