You may have heard that Facebook recently made some changes relating to privacy. As a measure to keep up with micro blogging sites, such as Twitter, Facebook has now changed its privacy settings to encourage additional sharing. This means that you can control who sees every post you share. The intent for this change is also to make privacy settings more simple and easy to understand.


Quote of the Day

by Lina on November 10th, 2009 in Comment.

We recently came across an article that featured an interesting quote from one of our competitors, so I thought I would share it:


We're happy to announce that our website has grown even more internationally-minded this week… and now speaks Japanese. Check out our newly launched Japanese site at www.lavasoft.jp.


We're happy to announce that reviewers around the world are taking notice of the new, lighter, faster version of Ad-Aware Anniversary Edition. But more importantly, we're getting great feedback from our users. Here are a few examples of what people from around the globe are saying:

"I would like to let you know that the Anniversary Edition is more powerful than Ad-Aware 2008 Pro....You did a great job of just not tweaking it but building a better system."
                                                                                        -Joe in Bowie, USA

"Thank you for your prompt reply and help. Yes I have downloaded the Anniversary edition and what a great improvement it is. I am thrilled with all the new features. Congratulations to all at Lavasoft for a job well done."
                                                                                     - Terry, New Zealand

"I have been using Ad-Aware for many years" Last week I downloaded your free Anniversary Edition. It works better, easier to use than the former one. In a few words: "It is really great." ...Just wanted to say thank you for your new free Anniversary Edition. Besides my comments, this e-mail has the intention of expressing my sincere: "Thank you so very much for offering this type of great programs to people all over the world."
                                                                                       - Gerd, Bolivia

Check out the improved features and compare how Ad-Aware stacks up against the competition.

There has been an abundance of facial hair at Lavasoft this past month, as our first ever Movember made its mark.

All throughout November, our Mo Bros have been growing their moustaches (some with better results than others) and raising about 4,000 SEK for cancer research. All funds raised at Lavasoft will be donated to cancerfonden.se

Thank you all for contributing to this great cause.

Lavasoft Personal Firewall 3.0 - New Version Now Available

With cyber threats morphing and growing more sophisticated, it is imperative to have a solid security solution. Hackers, identity thieves, Trojans, and keyloggers are just a few of the intruders waiting to get their hands on your confidential information, through unpatched security holes.


Shoppers Beware

Here at Lavasoft, we constantly come across websites that are trying to piggy back on our name, in order to try to scam people into buying the "product" they're selling. The following is just one example of how scammers will try to take advantage of you.
