How to keep your home and computer healthy.
What is a Safe Browser?
A safe browser is a web browser with extra security measures that help prevent unauthorized third-party activity while you’re surfing the web. These browsers have a white list, or a list of authorized programs and activities, and they prevent functions that are not on that approved list from starting up.
Why Safe Browser
Why should I use a safe browser?
While you may be familiar with anti-spyware and antivirus software, which react after a threat becomes apparent, safe browsers prevent certain actions from happening in the first place, making it a very proactive way to stay safer on the internet.
Safe browsers help stop third-party tools, like cookies. Cookies collect your private information, like the websites you’ve visited, usernames and passwords and other tracking data. Safe browsers also don’t share your identity, like some of their less secure counterparts. Even if you use a VPN, you’re only hiding your IP address, location and the data in transit. Your browser can still expose your identity through leaks or browser fingerprinting.
This may sound a little scary, but luckily, you can use secure browsers along with a VPN to better protect your online identity.
