Privacy Scanner

About the Privacy Scanner

Because web browsers and social networks make sharing information about yourself very easy, you might share more than you would like. The Privacy Scanner checks your Facebook, Google+, Google Chrome, and LinkedIn settings for privacy risks, and can help you ensure that your personal information stays private.

Using the Privacy Scanner

First, sign into the social network that you want to check.

If you are using Facebook or Twitter, find and click the See Scan Results button near the top of the page (the button name changes to Check My Privacy for LinkedIn or Google+).

When the Privacy Scanner results appear, follow the instructions to adjust your privacy settings.


If the Privacy Scanner cannot scan your profile, make sure you have not signed out from the social network you want to check. If you do not see the Check My Privacy button, make sure that you have enabled the Trend Micro Toolbar in your browser. For more information, see the Privacy Scanner FAQ.
