ScanGuard’s Social Media Monitoring alerts subscribers of instances where they are sharing personal information via social networking sites – profile info, comments, wall posts and more – which may expose personally identifiable information and put them at risk. It can also alert a subscriber of content that was found within their social network profiles that may damage their reputation like foul language, sexual content, and drug and alcohol references. Subscribers can monitor their children’s social networks too. Parents receive notifications when content on their child’s social network may indicate instances of cyberbullying, references to weapons, or intended sexual abuse (also known as grooming). ScanGuard’s Social Media Monitoring service is comprehensive, covering the four main social media networks. Subscribers may connect to the service easily via social media account credentials.

The social network monitoring Service allows Subscribers to monitor their social network profiles (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram) for any privacy and reputational risks. In the event that privacy risks occur with respect to a Subscriber’s information, this Service will alert the Subscriber in those cases where these social networks are sharing personal information on the public web, which can be used in a harmful manner by an identity thief. The disclosure can emanate from a Subscriber’s profile information, as well as comments and wall posts containing personal information, such as addresses, DOB’s, etc. The Service also alerts Subscribers regarding potential reputational risks. These alerts are sent when content is identified within a Subscriber’s social network profile that may damage the Subscriber’s reputation, which may include several different categories of potentially damaging content such as foul language, sexual content, drug and alcohol references, etc. This can help the Subscriber avoid sharing public facing content that could damage a person’s reputation. The Social Network Monitoring database is updated every 72 hours.
