    There is a self enrollment process for this. Through this process, users can access the free antivirus programs from Microsoft or McAfee. As per the reports, the social networking firm has said that the users can be more proactive with these new security checkpoints.

    Facebook created the anti-virus marketplace in the beginning of this year. Users can download trials of security software from here. There is also a system that will notify the users if their computers are infected.
