AVG Technologies NV : AVG PrivacyFix™ Family Makes Privacy a Team Effort

01/07/2014 | 08:35am EST

AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security, privacy and optimization to 172 million active users, today announced AVG PrivacyFix™ Family, its latest Facebook privacy app. The new app brings all members of the family together to make Facebook a safer place to "Be Yourself" online. For the first time, parents and teenage children can easily share their Facebook privacy settings with each other, even if they aren't "friends" on Facebook, helping users to not "overshare."

"Thanks to last year's high profile PRISM and NSA news stories, privacy is higher in the public consciousness than ever before - in fact, according to our latest research, 47% of people admitted that the news had led to them being more concerned about privacy. This is particularly true in today's over-sharing social media age. AVG PrivacyFix Family is the first privacy application that uses Facebook's social graph to make Facebook a more secure and private place for families," says Jim Brock, VP Privacy products. "With 58% of parents we spoke to advising that they felt uncomfortable about their children sharing personal information online, we're giving parents and children the guidance they need to make better privacy decisions on Facebook together in an easy and quick manner."

Any member of a household can start a AVG PrivacyFix Family group, and invite family and friends to participate. If the user already has family relationships mapped in Facebook, their family members will automatically be shown as available to be invited. The invitation can be sent either as a notification within Facebook, or through an email.

AVG PrivacyFix Family works in tandem with AVG PrivacyFix, the popular privacy app that puts you back in control of your personal online privacy. Available for your PC, mobile and tablet, it allows you to check, manage and personalize your privacy settings across popular sites such as Facebook®, Google®, LinkedIn®, as well as overall tracking across websites in general, all from one easy-to-use central control panel. With AVG PrivacyFix Family enabled, children can see their parents' choices and recommendations as part of the AVG PrivacyFix experience, making it easy to communicate guidance without being overbearing or having awkward discussions.

AVG PrivacyFix Family is immediately available for free to the public in a "Preview" version in the Facebook App Center, with full release anticipated later in 2014.
