Intel shows off their "condom for your digital life", McAfee Social Protection

Intel opens up their wallet, unveils a "condom for your digital life", or McAfee's Social Protection

| Apps News | Posted: Sep 13, 2012 7:26 am

Day two of keynotes have happened at the Intel Developer Forum, where Renee James, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Intel's Software & Services Group talked about software development, security and services in an "age of transparent computing".

 

 

The keynote involved a security-centric portion, where Renee grabbed a representative from Intel's McAfee division, where they showed off a beta release of the McAfee Social Protection app. McAfee's Social Protection app will be released soon as both an application, and browser plug-in for Facebook that makes people sharing their photos more secure.

 

McAfee's Social Protection would take this one step further, where it would, when installed, not allow people to copy or capture your images. As it stands, right now if anyone wants to download or screen capture your picture, they can do so without a problem. The McAfee Social Protection demo rep claimed that "McAfee Social Protection - It's like a condom for your digital life." I would've loved to have been there to hear that said out aloud.
