Improve Browser Protection



Fraudsters on the Internet use completely different methods of extorting money from gullible citizens, and the methods have many hidden dodgy schemes. And most of the account hacks happen through users' browsers. There are 5 proven ways to prevent such threats.

 

     

    • Detailed Setting

     

    In many browsers, some settings are already set by default. However, they are not always suitable for all users. Therefore, it is recommended that you carefully read all built-in functions and disable some of them.

     

    For example:

     

    protect chrome browser



    • Disabling Geolocation will help hide the location of a person.
    • Disabling access to the microphone and camera will insure against the presence of compromising data from intruders.
    • For your own safety in the network, it is better to play it safe. Moreover, it is easy to restore access to disabled elements.

    •  Installing Extensions

     

    Some applications and programs work only when downloading extensions in a specific browser. It is recommended to install only proven, popular and familiar extensions. You can buy and download them only in the official store. Before installing, you need to familiarize yourself with the list of data to which the extensions will have access, and only then work with them.

     

     


    •  Autocomplete Passwords

     

    Auto filling your data is convenient for permanent work, but the user's security on the network will decrease. Indeed, with any hacking, scammers can easily enter services, cash out money, or cause some other harm.
