An Unseen Intrusion Prevention System is a new Facebook feature that gives you protection from what’s called “fake friends”. These are people who show up on your friends list but that you have never met in person. When you are browsing through your profile, you can click on the button to expand the list of people you are connected to. When you click on an unknown person, a window will pop up, inviting you to “unfriend” them.
The problem with this is that if you’re really careful, it is easy to click on the wrong person and end up with an unpleasant outcome. If you are just not sure whom it is you’re trying to block, it can be very difficult to tell if it is a fake name or not. It might just be a picture of someone else, or it might not be the real person at all! So, if you are having problems with this feature, what can you do? How do you prevent Facebook from using this kind of unknown extension?
First, it’s important to know that this type of Facebook plug-in doesn’t have any affect on how the Facebook platform works. You can still see people’s information on other social networking platforms like Twitter, for example. But if the information you are seeing is coming from an extension instead of the main Facebook page, then there’s a problem.
The way to stop this from happening is to allow Facebook to use its own verification system to see whether or not the person you are blocking is in fact who they claim to be. Facebook has recently launched a tool called Social Signals. This is part of the new Facebook Search feature, which allows users to find other people’s profiles from within their search results. You can see the people whom Facebook believes are the ones who created the account you are trying to block. If you see a lot of people who have ‘friends’ on this extension but who you are not aware of (they may have blocked you), it means that the extension is probably a fake, and you should avoid clicking on it as it could be a dangerous application.
However, Social Signals won’t help you identify whether or not the Facebook Invisible Extension is malicious. This is because it doesn’t show you whether or not the extension is being used ethically or not. It only shows you whether or not someone is following you. So if you use the tool and you see someone following you, then you need to follow them or block them so they can’t join your account. It’s easy to do with the right add-on control panel.
So how do you get more information about the user behind an Invisible Extension? You want to look at the “blocks” section and click on each one. When you hover over a particular extension, you will see a pop-up box. You can then click on the link to see the real owner’s name and address.
Another way to see who is behind each Facebook extension is to go to your “Extensions” settings and then click on the + sign. From there, you will be able to see a list of all the extensions you currently have installed. If you don’t see the + sign, then you may want to go to the “Add New” tab and then click on “Add”. You’ll be able to type in an extension name and then click “connect” to complete the connection process.
As you can see, by being a bit more diligent in your internet browsing habits – like removing and blocking unwanted Facebook applications – you can help to limit the harm that these tools can do to your computer. It’s always a good idea to practice extreme caution, however, and you never want to put your safety at risk. However, if you have concerns about someone using your computer, you should contact law enforcement to investigate the matter.
